Details

Bletilla striata 'Blue Dragon' is one of Wendy's Faves this season...this is what she has to say:

Hardy orchids have long been a favourite of mine and this lavender blue beauty will be in my garden this summer. I am in love with the details of this little beauty: the ruffles, the spots and the shades of lavender & blue. They look so delicate but are hardy to zone 5.

This orchid-like perennial looks like a dragon in the middle of a great fire breathing moment!

The flowers are all shades of lavender-blue and have the most amazing ruffles down the throat. Bletilla striata, commonly called Chinese ground orchid is best grown in organically rich, medium moisture, well-drained soil in partial shade. It makes a good container plant, especially for areas colder than zone 6 where it can easily be brought inside in winter.
