Platanthera minor is a perennial orchid plant found in
forests in hills or shallow mountains, the roots being thick in a
fusiform way. Stems grow to 30-60cm in height, with prominent
vertical ridges. Leaves, 2 or 3 on the lower portion of the stems,
are large and gradually decrease upwards. The large ones, oblong,
measure 7-12cm in length and 2.5cm in width. Flowers are
yellowish-green; the dorsal sepals and the side petals overlap, the
spurs measuring 1.2-1.5 - longer than the ovaries.
