FR: orchis pyramidal
DE: Pyramiden-Spitzorchis, Pyramiden-Hundswurz
Despite its long spur and bright colour, there is no nectar for pollinators in the flowers of the pyramidal orchid. The lime-loving species is found in sunny rough pastures and dry grasslands. It has spread widely in Luxembourg in recent decades, especially in the former open-cast mining areas in the south of the country. This conspicuous species also likes to colonise filled-up road embankments.
