This is another rarity, featured in ‘Wild Flowers in Danger’. It’s found in East Anglia, in the Clifton Gorge in Avon, in Wales and in a handful of sites around Morecambe Bay. Part of the aim of the grassland project is to monitor this and a number of other rare species. Also, possibly to reintroduce this flower to other suitable sites, as has happened with Lady’s-slipper Orchid.
