One wouldn't normally consider the Buckingham Palace grounds a botanical garden, but botanists cataloging its plants have discovered a rare orchid on the property. ‘It is quite unusual to find the white helleborine north of the Thames, let alone in the middle of the city in the Queen’s back garden. It shows just how important green spaces are in built-up areas for giving wildlife a refuge.’
