Cremastra appendiculata / Saihairan サイハイラン

Cremastra appendiculata is a perennial found in a shade of a tree in a hilly district. It affords pseudobulbs, arranged in a line from new to old, and the last one creates a single large oblong, tapering-to-a-point leaf and a flower stalk at the base. It blooms in May-June. After the flower, the leaf dies, following the appearance of a new plate, which is to go dormant in Autumn. 30-50cm in height peduncle sets up a raceme of 10-20 long and narrow light greenish-brown, partly reddish-purple flowers. Bloom time: May-June.
