Pogonia minor is
a perennial orchid species, terrestrial, inhabiting a sunny
grassland plain erecting 10- to 20cm in height. Finding one out
takes a lot of work, and Shimane Red Data Book lists this as a VU.
The stem bears a single 3-7cm long oval leaf in about halfway
position and a 1.2cm in length flower upward on the apex. The light
pink flower is habitually not fully open but loose enough to observe
inside once in a long while. Bloom time: June-August.
