You might know Bletilla striata (syn. B. hyacinthina) as the Chinese Ground Orchid or Hardy Orchid, but whether you’ve ever encountered it or not, it’s an easy to grow delight that thrives in garden conditions without any special care. Nodding spikes of up to ten orchid blooms in a lovely shade of pinkish-lilac adorn each plant, an they’re set against a background of dark-green, palm-like foliage.

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

Tropical as it may look, Bletilla striata tolerates all but the chilliest conditions, thriving in light shade as a garden plant or bright, indirect light when grown as a pot specimen. No special growing media or fertilizers are required for this plant to bloom at its best!
