Epipactis atrorubens - Dark Red Helleborine

Suomessa tummaneidonvaippaa tavataan hyvin harvinaisena ja se on luonnonsuojelulailla rauhoitettu.
Suomen lähialueilla laji on paikoitellen melko tavallinen Norjassa, Ruotsissa ja Virossa.
Tummaneidonvaippaa esiintyy valoisilla paikoilla erityisesti kallioisessa maastossa rinteillä ja soraikoilla, aina kalkkialueilla.

The Dark Red Helleborine favors warm and dry locations, with soil basic to neutral in pH, nutrient-poor, and permeable.
It grows in loose rock, scree, or sandy soils above a limestone substrate.
It is widespread across Europe, and is found in the north to the subarctic,
in the south to the meridional zone, and in the east to Central Siberia and the Caucasus (Wikipedia).

Almost like a studio shot - well captured. It's a little like our Hyacinth Orchid.
