Bletilla white


Color: White flowers

The new Bletilla hybrids are the result of hybridizing several species. Strings of wonderful flowers appear during summer time over a long period. All species are originally growing in the Far East, like China, Japan and Korea. Do not plant them too wet, as the tuberiform roots could freeze during a very cold spell in winter. The flowers appear in wonderful colours: it is not yet possible to select a particular colour. Cover the plants with a layer of leaves or peat during winter times and next spring it will start all over again.
