Goodyera velutiana is
an evergreen perennial that inhabits forests in mountainous regions,
the basal parts crawling on the ground and the upper portions
extending diagonally upward to 5-10cm in height. The leaves are in
an alternate arrangement with wavy margins of two to four
centimeters in length. From shoot-apexes emerge some light red
flowers facing one side. Bloom time: August-September.
