Platanthera tipuloides var. nipponica is a perennial orchid species inhabiting sunny wetlands, its stems measuring 20-40cm in height, with a single leaf. The leaves are broadly linear, each 3-7cm in length and the bases embrace the stems. Scaly leaves stick to the branches to be unnoticeable. The spike-like inflorescence is with some light yellow-green flowers on one side. Spurs, measuring 1.5--1.8cm in length, are leaping up backward. Bloom time: June-August.
