Fragrant orchid (Gymnadenia conopsea)

One of the typical orchid species of the Peszér-forest, which is the most important nature conservation area, is the fragrant orchid.

This species habitat includes mountain meadows and pastures, grassland and fens. They grow on siliceous and calcareous substrate, mildly damp and with low nutritional value, at an altitude of 0–2,400 metres (0–7,874 ft) above sea level.
