The white Urn orchid or Bletilla striata 'White' (syn. B. hyacinthina 'Alba') is an old-fashioned garden favourite. Although many species of orchid are actually epiphytes (air plants,) and require specialized potting soils and treatment, Bletilla striata 'Alba' (White) lives up to the hardiness its common name implies. Simply plant it in well drained soil in light shade or as a container plant in bright, indirect light and enjoy lush foliage and a delightful display of white, unmistakably orchid blooms!

Gracy says:
"Of all hardy orchids, Bletilla (commonly known as ‘Urn Orchids’) are among the simplest to maintain in the garden!"

Like other orchids, it lasts well as a cut flower, so if you’re growing plants for the vase, bletillas are a choice you shouldn’t ignore. Enjoy this low maintenance perennial on its own or combine it with some of the other colours we offer in our range.
