Wild Orchids

Spring and pre-summer is the flowering season of the wild orchids. Here in the province of Asti there are over 40 different species. As there are many wild or feral areas, this diversity has been preserved. Also on my property I discovered up to now eight different kinds.

  • Ophrys sphegodes
  • Ophrys dinarica
  • Ophrys holosericea subsp. linearis
  • Orchis purpurea
  • Orchis anthropohora
  • Neotinea tridentata
  • Himantoglossum adriaticum
  • Anacamptis morio
