The petals and sepals are combined in a long acuminate helmet, concolorous with the lip of shade usually pink (sometimes pale pink, rarely purple).

Its distribution area, centered on southern Italy, extends from Morocco to the west in Lebanon to the east. She is absent from Sardinia and Corsica. It can locally create very large populations.
