£59.99 Add to basket


The self sowing wild orchids are amongst the most admired plants in the world, with the Greek species numbering almost 200. Of these, a little more than half belong to the Ophrys genus, the only one in which the attraction of insect pollinators is accomplished through the sexual deception of certain species of male insects.

This title presents 124 species, subspecies and varieties of the Ophrys genus with descriptions of the main characteristics and comparisons between similar species.
