Cephalanthera longifolia.
Cephalanthère à longues feuilles.
Sword leaved helleborine.

Cephalantheres are generally light undergrowth orchids. The flowers open little. To distinguish the 3 species, it's quite simple: the red phalanthera has pink flowers, the long-leaved phalanthera has leaves which start from the base of the plant and form erect swords, the Large-flowered Cephalanthera has rounder leaves on the entire stem.
