Bletilla striata


The foliage is attractive and the rosy-mauve blooms are a knockout in the garden. 

Bletilla striata is a low growing hardy orchid that bears lovely pinkish purple floral spikes with broad leaf, grass-like foliage. Commonly known as the Chinese ground orchid, this oriental beauty makes attractive, long-lasting cut flowers and are highly decorative as potted plants. Bletilla striata can be grown outdoors in zones 5-10. In zones 5-7, a heavy winter mulch is recommended and move pot-grown plants into a cool, non-frost location over the winter.
