Hardy Ground Orchid Mix (Bletilla striata)

Hardy Ground Orchid Mix (Bletilla striata)

Give that mixed border or container garden the look of unique elegance with these terrestrial Orchids. Proven to be the easiest orchids for the garden! Blooms come in purple-blue, pink and white that sets the late-spring landscape alight in color with very little effort. Flowers have an exotic cattleya-like form and emerge in groups of 3-7 along each 18-24" scape. They make a wonderful floriferous display when planted in groupings. A snap to grow and maintain, they need only a bit of shade and well-drained soil to thrive. Hardy Ground Orchids grow of their own accord, spreading nicely to increase in flower and foliage. Planted in a rock garden or front border, the bright colors and pleasing form attract lots of attention.
  • Hardiness Zones 5-9

  • Bloom Time May - June

I have just received my order for the mix of bletilla striata. I can only hope that I have one of each color. The bulbs or corms are so very small. Not what I expected.
