Few people would guess that Spiranthes flowers are orchids, a fact that may help save them from collectors. The narrow, grasslike leaves are 8–10 inches long, growing from the base of the plant. The flowers are white and grow along the upper part of the slender, erect stem. The flowers are sweetly fragrant! The top of the stem has a twisted appearance and each blossom looks as though its “nodding”. Grows well in damp conditions, although it may tolerate some dry conditions! Tea made from parts of the plant has some medicinal uses.
