綬草 chinese spiranthes

綬是絲帶的意思。此草本植物,十數粉或白的小花沿花莖螺旋狀排列,頗如絲絹之姿。而青翠花莖盤扭,也給與她青龍柱一類的名字。植物全株均有藥用,而其根肉質如參,故稱盤龍參。我却偏好清明草一名,意指其開花時節。

chinese spiranthes (spiranthes sinensis) is a species of orchid in eastern asia. its delicate form and the labellum of the small blossoms are vivid proof of the inheritance.

綬草是蘭科植物,細小的花具有蘭典型的特徵:唇瓣和蕊柱。

love how the plant structured, almost architectural – the jade green spiral ladder elegantly engraved with steps of flora mostly angelic white with hints of rouge.

細讀資料,還有發現,此多年生植物有香港的品種。

自然博覽空間》: 本地另有一種香港綬草,花呈白色,花序的螺旋形狀不及綬草明顯,總花柄及萼片均密佈細毛,故又名毛綬草。

維基》: 香港綬草是香港的特有種,花多為白色,花序軸和花冠均被腺狀柔毛,3朵花組成一圈,鬆散地形成螺旋,與本種有相似之處

那我在家附近山坡看到的,會是此品種嗎?

and, there is a hong kong species, spiranthes hongkongensis. (check the info on hong kong flora and vegetation) would these be the one?
