Description

Groundbreaking Blooms that can grow in most zones!
Prized by collectors and novice gardeners alike, orchids produce some of the most beautiful and distinctive blooms on earth. But did you know that orchids aren't typically found in the ground? The flowers that most people think of when they hear "orchid" usually emerge from crevices in tropical trees, and are cultivated very carefully for indoor enjoyment in colder climates. Those varieties have earned orchids a reputation for being prima donnas that are difficult and frustrating to grow. But not our newest rare collection…

Don't let their delicate looks fool you!
These exquisite flowers may look fussy, but they'll thrive in borders, containers and rock gardens with minimal care. Simply plant them in a well-drained area and protect them from extreme cold.

Easy-Care Orchids Do Exist!
If you've never grown a Chinese Ground Orchid, also called Bletilla, you're in for a treat. Each shoot can produce up to 14 exotic blooms with heavily ruffled lips. Not only are these delicate beauties easier to grow than any other orchid variety, but because they grow in the ground, they're able to withstand much colder temperatures than their tree-dwelling cousins. In fact, the three varieties in this brand new collection will thrive even in zones 5 and 6 with only a little winter mulch as protection. Ground Orchid foliage makes an attractive display when the pretty pastel flowers aren't in bloom, and your collection will increase in size and beauty over time.

This collection includes 1 each of the following varieties:

Blue Dragon
White Dragon
Purple Pink Dragon
