Green-Winged Orchid Overview
Anacamptis morio is a tuberous, herbaceous, perennial orchid species in the orchid family, Orchidaceae. It is terrestrial and thus grows in soil in the ground, producing lance-shaped foliage measuring between 10-16cm long and small purple or occasionally white flowers. The flowers measure approximately 1cm in length, they are arranged densely on a central spike. This plant is commonly known by the names Green-Winged Orchid and Green-Veined Orchid after the venation on the outer tepals. Tepals are petal-like structures which cannot definitively be classified as petals to attract pollinators or sepals, which surround flower buds as a layer of protection.
