Broad leaved Helleborines at Cloud Wood.



Two photos of the rare form Var.viridiflora.

Normal "type" of Broad-leaved Helleborines.

I nipped over to Cloud Wood LRWT yesterday to check on the Broad Leaved Helleborines which occur on the rides of the wood.
Over the couple of hours I found at least 140+ flowering spikes and at least 14 plants which showed characteristics of the rare form Var.viridiflora.
Although most of the plants were still coming into flower I expect the helleborines to be at there best in a couple of weeks.
