What is Cymbidium kanran

Cymbidium kanran, or the kanran (scientific name:Cymbidium kanran) The kanran (scientific name: Cymbidium kanran) is a native orchid of Japan, southern China, Taiwan, and Jeju Island, Korea. It is found on the floor of broadleaf forests in the plains of Honshu (west of Shizuoka Prefecture), Shikoku, Kyushu, and the Ryukyu Archipelago. It grows underground with roots from a spherical stem (pseudobulb), and produces several linear leaves above the ground and flower stalks on stumps. The plant grows to a height of 60-100 cm. It has linear, dark green leaves with full margins. 3 to 15 flowers per stem from October to January. The flowers come in a variety of colors: green, peach, red, yellow, white, and blue, but the standard color is green with red streaks or dashes. The flowers are fragrant. Petals are long and narrow with pointed tips. The lip petals are small and white to yellow with small red spots. It is an oriental orchid species that has long been over-mined and endangered in the wild because of its high price.
