Cephalanthera erecta var. subaphylla / Yuushunran ユウシュンラン

 

Cephalanthera erecta var. subaphylla is a perennial orchid species found in hilly district forests. Its stems grow to 10-15cm in height in flowering time, the leaves retrogressing as if to change into sheaths; the highest-positioned ones, 1-2cm in length, look close to standard, though. Shoot tops set 2-3 about 1cm long, half-open white flowers. There are one or two bracts at the base of peduncles. Bloom time: May-June.
