nejibana

Spiranthes sinensis In Japanese, it is called NEJIBANA which means “screw-flower” due to the way it twists in a spiral way. It grows in grasslands and just about everywhere really. It is so tiny and I thought it was a grass until I learnt this week it’s one of most common orchids in Japan. Blooming season is April-October. The height is 10-40cm.

Growing Tips: you can grow it in any soil; loves a sunny place throughout the year; half-hardy and very easy to grow; it will die when it becomes 7-8 years old but you can get many seedlings around the plant.
