We finally have enough of this Japanese native hardy woodland orchid to share. Calanthe discolor emerges from the pseudobulb with 2-3 heavily pleated 6" long x 2" wide leaves. As the bulb offsets, the clumps can get quite thick. The foliage, which is evergreen to 15 degrees F, is topped in mid-spring with 10" stalks of tiny mahogany flowers with pure white lower lips...a very easy-to-grow addition to that special spot in the woodland garden.

A very durable, cold-hardy orchid species from Japan with showy 10 inch spikes of burgundy and white bicoloured flowers in May. The burgundy can vary between cool and warm burgundies. The attractive foliage is heavily pleated and semi-evergreen. These seven year old plants are blooming-size, virus-free and were derived from flasked seedlings. Calanthes are hardy terrestrial orchids for classic shade garden conditions. They are relatively easy to grow in rich, well-drained soils in part shade.
