The History of the Red Helleborine

Copies of the latest GNS publication are now available to buy for £10 (inc P&P).

The Red Helleborine (Cephalanthera rubra) is a rare and enigmatic member of the orchid family, surrounded by secrecy and intrigue, and Gloucestershire is one of its strongholds in the British Isles. The author, David Armstrong, has spent the best part of 30 years studying and researching this plant whilst working for the National Trust. This has involved visits to the few other known sites in the country as well as the local ones, literature searches, and visits to various herbaria, all pulled together in this illustrated booklet to create a fascinating read.
