"Beautiful, Hardy and Multiplies"

I received some Ground Orchids from my mother more than 25 years ago when she divided her bulbs. They are beautiful and absolutely need no fussing. In fact several years ago my own daughter dug some of mine up so that she could have some too. They are planted in a somewhat sheltered area that receives morning sun and afternoon shade.
