Your average heath spotted orchid is a lovely purple orchid, with spotted leaves similar to the broad-leaved marsh orchid. However, there are many variations and exceptions. The color can vary and the leaves aren't always spotted. In fact, those with unspotted leaves have white flowers and those with lots and lots of spots have very dark purple flowers. Sometimes the flower head is dense with blossoms while other times the blossoms are spread apart. Even the size can vary. Maybe this is why so many different insects pollinate the flower. Although specific beetle species are responsible for the most pollination, bumblebees, bees and hoverflies also contribute.
