Bletilla striata 'Variegata'

Orchid

Variegated Hardy Orchid blooms in May, producing rosy purple flowers that look like small delicate cattleyas.  The flowers persist for several weeks, and Bletilla striata 'Variegata' continues to add interest to the garden because of the thin white stripes on the broad tropical looking leaves.  Hardy Orchids grow to make good sized clumps in shady location.  They remind us of Prom corsages for pixies.
