  • Position: partial shade in summer
  • Soil: moist, well-drained, humus-rich soil
  • Flowering period: June to July
  • Hardiness: half hardy

    Up to 12 pink blooms, each with ruffled lips that are usually infused with a darker shade, open in succession on the slender, upright stem in spring. An easy to grow plant, which if left undisturbed, will spread to form good-sized clumps.

  • Garden care: Plant bulbs 2cm deep and 15 - 20cm apart in a partially shaded position. In mild areas apply a generous layer of dry mulch in autumn to provide insulation. Alternatively, lift the bulb in autumn and store it in a dry, frost-free place. Bletillas grown in pots should be moved to a conservatory or unheated greenhouse during winter. They should be kept dry during their winter dormancy.

  • CAUTION do not eat ornamental bulbs
