creeping lady's-tresses

LB: Krauchend Netzblat FR: goodyère rampante DE: Kriechendes Netzblatt

The creeping lady's-tresses is the only orchid found in Luxembourg that forms evergreen, reticulate veined foliage. It grows in nutrient-poor pine forests, because with increased nutrient input it is quickly overgrown by grasses and dies. This orchid species is native to colder climates or mountains and spread in the early 20th century as a result of pine plantings.
