White Hardy Ground Orchid – New for Spring 2020

Featured New Item: White Hardy Ground Orchid

The White Hardy Ground Orchid (botanical name: Bletilla striata ‘Alba’) is an easy-to-grow terrestrial orchid. It’s an excellent choice for flowerbeds, borders, and rock gardens. You can also grow this hardy orchid in a container!

Hardy orchids generally grow to about 12″-18″ tall. This variety bears white blooms in late spring to midsummer. If you have problems with deer eating your plants, you’ll notice that they leave this one alone!

  • Choose a location with partial shade for best results. If you’re in a hotter climate, make sure the plant is shaded in the afternoon.
  • Plant 2″ to 3″ deep and 4″ apart. Be sure to allow some room for the plants to naturalize and spread out over time.
  • Keep your White Hardy Ground Orchid plants well watered, but well drained. Be sure there is no standing water around the roots for too long.
  • This plant is hardy in zones 5 through 9. However, in zone 5 we recommend mulching prior to winter for added protection.
