The Pyramidal Orchid – The only place in Denmark you will find it

This post is also available in: Dansk

We went out looking for the beautiful flower The Pyramidal Orchid. The only place in Denmark you will find it is Jydelejet på Møn.

Like other orchids in Denmark, the Pyramidal Orchid is threatened by:
– People who think they can pick it up and make it grow at home.
– Loss of habitat e.g. due to overgrowth

The Pyramidal Orchid is rare and is on the Danish red list 1997

Go and enjoy it – but only take a photo with you. Leave the grazing to the livestock in the area which enables to maintain high species richness in the landscape. The livestock is Galloways and is managed by the local grazing association Græsningsforeningen Høje Møn.
