    Saw it in the mountains near Teruel, Spain.

    Six feet from a river and in a shady wood.

    Early June this year.

    I have googled wild Iris and I think Joy and Judith are definitely on the right track and all I need to do is find which Iris it is.

    Many thanks to you both

    I think it's a species of orchid called the Violet Limodore. They have no chlorophyll and are thought to saprophytic or possibly parasitic
