If you’re familiar with the Urn orchid or ground orchid, you’re probably thinking of lilac blooms, but Bletilla striata 'Yellow' (syn. B. hyacinthina 'Yellow') cultivar bucks the system with buttercup-yellow orchids blooms nobody can fail to admire. Even better yet, it doesn’t require any special treatment or expertise to grow, bloom, and multiply into a dense clump of attractive foliage topped by sprays of up to ten blooms per flowering spike.

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

Some people call this terrestrial orchid the Hardy Orchid, and that’s just what it is. No matter whether you’ve ever grown orchids before, you’re sure of success with bletillas. Why not collect the whole range? Or try one colour (like this yellow variety) this year, fall in love, and get them all next year.
