Epipactis helleborine is a tall orchid, very wide-spread and common.

It has large, oval and dark green leaves that do not clasp the stem. Some specimens, with more spaced and largely rounded leaves and often growing in more sunny places, are called E. helleborine var. orbicularis
Flowers are numerous, well opened and green to pink.
It likes shady places and often blooms in colony from end of June to beginning of August.

Beautiful close-up of this lovely orchid, which can be found in our north, too.
