In late spring, visitors can admire Ophrys apifera, Ophrys holosericea, many Anacamptis pyramidalis, and occasionally some specimens of Orchis purpurea.

On the eastern side, along the road that goes up to the Sanctuary of Spiazzi and in Ferrara del Baldo, there are many other species, including Cephalanthera rubra.
Going even higher, in the chestnut woods between Spiazzi and Ferrara, visitors can easily find Neottia nidus-avis, Orchis mascula, and Platanthera bifolia.

Further on, the flora includes Cephalanthera longifolia and C.damasonium, while going up along the Graziani road, there are sparse beech woods and huge limestone meadows full of Dactylorrhiza sambucina (blooming in spring), Traunsteinera globosa, Orchis ustulata, Gymnadenia odoratissima, Nigritella nigra, and .

Many of those orchids are also found in the Botanical Garden inside the Park, located in Novazzina (Ferrara del Monte Baldo), on the eastern side of the mountain.
