Bletilla x yokohama ‘Sweet Lips’

Bletilla x yokohama Sweet Lips3

Here’s a photo from the garden yesterday, the hardy garden orchid, Bletilla x yokohama ‘Sweet Lips’.  We tried this with average success in light shade, but once we moved it out into full sun, it exploded.  Bletillas are tolerant of pretty much everything from boggy soils to just shy of desert conditions.  All of the bletilla orchids are just amazing.  Bletilla striata and its hybrids like Bletilla x yokohama are in full flower now, and the yellow, Bletilla ochracea will be starting shortly.
