Himantoglossum robertianum.
Orchis géant.
Giant orchid.

The orchid is Mediterranean but tends to extend its territory towards the North and the West. It takes both climatic conditions for an orchid to progress territorially but also pollinators. 

Easy to identify because of its color and sometimes its imposing size (but often of modest size: around 15/30 cm), you will sometimes see it on the side of the road on the embankments. It gives off a delicate smell of lilies (in my opinion...).
