Product Description

Not like the finicky orchids used as a potted accent in homes. These hardy ground orchids are vastly easier to grow, with graceful, lilylike flowers above pleated foliage. They're ideal for a border in partial shade, or as a rock garden accent. They are reliably winter hardy, so long as they are not overwintered with wet roots. Hardy orchids are slow growing, and may take a few seasons to produce full, high-quality blooms. However, with a little patience, you can show off your skills with one of the most infamously tricky plants—your beautiful orchids increasing in beauty and numbers every year. Bletilla striata mixed
