  • Cymbidium kanran is an important commercial member of the Chinese orchid family due to its delicate fragrance, attractive color, shape, and the scent of its flowers. It possesses a high economic value as an ornamental plant. As the focus in evaluation of orchid, the labellum exhibits various morphological variations. It is exclusively distributed in a few neighboring countries in Northeast Asia (China, Japan, Korea, and Taiwan), and now among the endangered species facing extinction. Jeju Island is the only place in Korea where a small number of wild populations still exist[1][2].
