Cymbidium goeringii, a perennial orchid species, inhabits dry deciduous tree beds in fields and mountains. Leaves emerge in bundles, each linear, leathery, and challenging; the margins feel gritty. Flower stalks, 10-25cm tall, wearing membranous, sheath-like scales, set single flowers on apexes. Sepals, 3 in number, and side petals, 2 in number, are green or yellowish-green, and lips are large and white, with dark red-purple dots. Bloom time: March-April.
