Orchid flowers of Vlieland island, Europe’s earliest


This video is about the Lesser Twayblade orchid, Neottia cordata.

Translated from the Dutch botanists of Werkgroep Europese Orchideeën:

Sunday, April 26th, 2015

Last weekend, two members of the Working Group on European Orchids (WEO) found on Vlieland the first flowering specimens of the Neottia cordata orchid. After a literature review it turned out that nowhere in Europe the species blooms as early as on the Dutch Wadden Sea islands Vlieland and Terschelling.

Sea holly flowering on Vlieland: here; on Texel: here.
