Epipactis viridiflora (Blume) Ames var. leptochila
Epipactis leptochila, the narrow-lipped helleborine, is a species of orchid in the genus Epipactis. Found in chalk or limestone-based beech and hornbeam woodland in southern England, the orchids are also found with birch and alder trees in Scotland and the north of England. The narrow-lipped helleborine blooms from early June to mid-August. Epipactis leptochila is also found in parts of northern Europe (away from the coastline) but it is known for its presence in England.[clarification needed] Due to woodland clearing, the orchids are becoming less common.
