burnt orchid

LB: Gesengt Bouwekraut FR: orchis brûlé DE: Brand-Knabenkraut

The inflorescence of this orchid looks burnt, on account of its black-brown buds. This species from sunny, calcareous dry grassland is now extinct in Luxembourg. However, the burnt orchid still grows near the border on the orchid trail between Mertert and Konz.
