There was a population of Bog Orchids
at the Elan Valley in Radnorshire.
It also supports localised areas of blanket bog, which has a diverse range of plant species including the nationally rare Bog Orchids
As a result of an inholder allowing cattle to roam along the river at Dinosaur National Monument, willows and other wetland vegetation have been stripped bare, rare alcove bog orchids
have been lost, and microbiotic crusts that prevent erosion have been crushed.
You'll find the usual flowers--Indian paintbrush, fireweed, and penstemon--and the unusual--white bog orchids
and pink elephant heads.
hide in peaty flushes surrounded by sundews and white beak-sedge on the blanket bog, and butterfly orchids bloom amid milkwort and great burnet in the hay meadows.
