Calanthe mannii Hook. is a widespread species occurring in temperate areas from the Himalayas to Japan. It is in fact a Calanthe en miniature as everything about it is tiny - you can see the Anemone (Anemonoides) nemorosa in the background of the images by Martin Bohnet. For him, it survived about -7 °C in a mild but wet winter. From the tip emerging mid April it took only 2 weeks to flower, before the leaves were completely developed.
