The Banana orchid (Cymbidium canaliculatum) belongs to Orcidaceae (the Orchid family). It is widely distributed from northern to eastern Australia. This herb grows in tropical to subtropical forests and grows on the back of tree trunks. Pseudobulbs are ovate. The leaves are long, linear and leathery, with grooves on the surface for efficient rainwater flow. From September to November, a flower stalk about 50 cm in length is extended from the pseudobulb, and about 60 fragrant flowers bloom. There are many variations in flower color, such as green, brown, dark red, and dark purple.
