Bletilla striata

hyacinth orchid

RHS award of garden merit
9cm pot £11.99

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: partial shade
  • Soil: moist, well-drained, humus-rich soil
  • Flowering period: April to June
  • Hardiness: half hardy (will need winter protection)

    Up to 12 pink blooms, each with ruffled lips that are usually infused with a darker shade, open in succession on the slender, upright stem in spring. An easy to grow plant, which if grown in reliably moist soil, will spread to form a good-sized clump.

  • Garden care: Once planted, leave undisturbed so they can spread. Apply a generous layer of mulch in the autumn.
