Calanthe discolor / Ebine エビネ

Calanthe discolor is a perennial, terrestrial orchid inhabiting deciduous tree forest floors in mountainous regions. Leaves, two or three in number, emerge from the bases of the plants. Raceme-like stalks, measuring 30-50cm in height, make lots of flowers, the color of sepals and petals being, in general, brown-purple and that of lips light red-white. There are, however, several variations. Bloom time: April-May.
