Bletilla striata

Bletilla striata

Hardy Orchid

Hardy Orchid has rosy purple flowers in May, like miniature Cattleyas.  It is a native of the grassy slopes of central and southern Japan and the cool mountain slopes of China.  Over time is will naturalize and slowly spread.  Bletilla striata prefers moist, well drained soil but will handle some dryness once established. Best planted in spring or early summer.
