This hard to find but easy-to-grow cultivar from Japan is distinguished by its two-tone flowers. The upper part of the flower is white, while the lip is a contrasting purple. The foliage and growth habit are the same as in the species. I have seen this occasionally incorrectly offered as Bletilla striata 'Alba', which should be solid white.

A Japanese selection epitomizing the refined nuances of art and beauty all in a little hardy terrestrial orchid. That is so Japanese! No stereotyping but they do have some things well and truly figured out. Kuchibeni is lipstick and the white pleated flower pouch is rimmed in pink.
