Spiranthes sinensis var. amoena is a perennial orchid with white spindle-shaped stout roots inhabiting a moist, sunny grassland or lawn in the countryside. The leaves are linear-lanceolate, tips tapering off to a point, and measure 5-20cm in length. The flower stalk grows up to 10-40cm tall, the raceme delivering small flowers, ranging from deep pink and light pink to white, in a spiral arrangement. The flowers open sideways. Bloom time: May-August.
