Caption: Orchid flowers. Close-up of flowers of the elder- flower orchid (Dactylorhiza sambucina). The yellow and red-spotted petal of each flower is called the lip. This is a specialised petal that attracts pollinators and provides them with somewhere to land. The Dactylorhiza orchids grow in marshes and damp meadows in Europe and temperate regions of Asia and the Middle East. Orchids that grow in the ground are called terrestrial orchids. There are more than 30,000 species of orchids worldwide, many of which are grown as ornamental flowers.
