Of Japanese and Chinese origin, Spiranthes sinensis has the typical morphology of Spiranthes, namely a spiral inflorescence like a braid. It is characterized by pretty pink to dark pink petals surrounding the white heart.
It is a small plant, the tubers are small and the rosette of the leaves rarely exceeds 5-10 cm in diameter. This species becomes remarkable, however, when the very tightly packed pink to dark pink flower spikes appear at the end of the summer. These spikes can reach a height of 30 to 40 cm.
