As you’ll discover when you plant Pecteilis radiata (syn. Habenaria radiata) also known as the Egret orchid, orchids don’t have to be difficult to grow. This orchid species from the Far East is easily grown from tubers, and rewards you with blooms shaped like white birds with wings spread in flight. There’s no need to baby this orchid despite its delicate looks. It’s perfectly happy grown in containers or garden beds outdoors. It will be dormant in winter, and needs relatively cold conditions for at least three months of the year.

The true beauty of Habenaria radiata's blooms lies in their detail, so give your white Egret flower plants a prominent position where you can get an up-close look at them and don’t overwhelm them by planting them in a sea of blooms. Container plantings are ideal for Habenaria radiata since you can move the flowers into a high-profile spot when they are blooming.
