New wild flower day trips in the Languedoc

At Birding Languedoc we have often been asked if we offer day trips with a focus on the local flora… So now we do!

There are over 3,000 species of wild flowers (including over 80 species of orchid) in this part of France, so there is plenty to see. We are proposing two day trips, both with the goal of seeing many of the spring flowering annuals, perennials, bulbs and orchids that are found here.

These day trips will be a relaxed exploration of the local flora guided by Gill Pound – an experienced amateur botanist and former proprietor of La Petite Pépinière de Caunes; assisted by Philippa Benson – founder of Birding Languedoc and also an interested amateur botanist. Neither of us are professionals but both of us have lived here long enough to have acquired a good working knowledge of the local flora!

The flowering season for each plant can vary widely from year to year, so there are no guarantees of any particular wild flowers. However, given the habitats and timing of our two day trips we will no doubt see a good range of orchids and cistus as well as hopefully, Wild tulips and Dwarf iris, various wild narcissi, Apyllanthes monspeliensis, Asphodels and much more!
