Syunran Orchid (Cymbidium goeringii) from Yamanashi

Syunran Orchid (Cymbidium goeringii) from Yamanashi
These grow near to Mount Fuji.10 28 2006
Photographed near Lake Kawaguchiko.
Cymbidium plants are sympodial and grow to a height of 60 cm and the racemes as high as 90 cm. The raceme grows from the base of the most recent pseudobulb. Each flower can have a diameter of 5 to 10 cm, according to the species. They bloom during the winter, and each plant can have up to fifteen or more flowers. The fantastic range of colors for this genus include white, green, yellowish-green, cream, yellow, brown, pink, and red [and orange] and black (and there may be markings of other color shades at the same time), but not blue. The flowers last about ten weeks. They have a waxy texture. The rounded sepals and petals have about the same dimensions.

Yes Jenny, it really is. But a ten CM diameter is hardly what tiny.
