Orchids

Orchids with their beauty never fail to amaze. There are 36 species of Orchids found in Estonia and 30 species can be found from Lääne county. As one of the symbols of Lääne county is Military Orchid you can imagine that it must be a good place to study the Orchids.

The best time to study Orchids is early and mid-June but the beautiful Lady Slipper Orchids can be found blooming already in late May. Beside the oustanding Lady Slipper Orchid you can find also Fly Orchid, Red Hellborine, Burnt Orchid and Baltic Orchid. The best diversity of Orchids can be found at wooded meadows while few species can be found in more wet areas in swamps or near the lakes.
