Originally native to the forested mountains of Japan and China, these winter hardy Orchids love to be grown in a part sun/part shade environment and rich soil which will enable them to bloom each season from May to June. Anywhere that you may grow hostas, these will be perfect additions. And even when they are not in bloom, their pleated, sword-like foliage maintains its elegance in the garden from spring to fall. These rare, winter hardy Orchids are superb specimens for your part shade garden because by the second season, each plant will produce 5-7 flower racemes displaying fairy tale like bellflowers. And every year thereafter they will produce more and more and more. However, what makes Roberta’s collection even more special is that the collection is comprised of both a Purple and White Bletilla, two of the most extraordinary colors that are essentially unavailable in the western hemisphere. If you were ever to come across one of these in America, it would undoubtedly be a boring, pale pink color. Generally the term low maintenance is nowhere to be found concerning orchids, but for once you can have your orchids and enjoy them too. These perennial orchids are a real treat in the garden especially along borders or in garden beds where they can have a chance to grow and fill each season. They are also fantastic in containers, because in the winter you can simply bring them indoors and they’ll seamlessly join your other Roberta’s houseplants. If you love orchids, but are afraid of growing them, fear not, Roberta’s is here.
