Penway Sunset Hardy Ground Orchid

$19.99

Bletilla striata 'Penway Sunset' is one of our newest varieties, Penway Sunset, provides a cheerful, yet soothing colorway to sun-filled sites such as borders, rock gardens, containers and even cutting beds.  Their unique flower form is reminiscent of their classic cousins, but they possess a charm all their own. Penway Sunset is easier to grow than other orchid varieties because it grows in the ground and can withstand colder temperatures than its tree-dwelling cousins

Growth Habit

Hardy from zones 3-9, Penway Sunset blooms (yellow/pink blooms) in late spring and early summer. Petite, yellow blooms grow to a mere 1½" long and appear in groups of 3 to 7 atop 20" scapes. Mature height and spread is 12-15". Plant 4" deep.

Care

Best results come from planting Penway Sunset in well-drained soil in a full sun to partly shaded area. Average water needs. Water regularly, do not over water and place in acidic, clay/loamy sandy soil.

Toxicity

Deer resistant. Orchids are not toxic to pets.
