China, Japan. Sometimes we imagine a plant as delicate in appearance as an orchid could not be hardy in colder climates. Bletilla striata f. alba disproves that illusion. Well before bloom time, lance-shaped, almost grass-like foliage emerges. It is followed by lovely pale flowers with a subtle perfume. The show can continue for up to six weeks. Best of all, it is easy to grow in light shade in average, well-draining soil.

Spring to early summer.   12-24 in. x 12-24 in.
