Pleione formosana (Pleione formosana)

Three years on since purchase. It is a terrestrial Orchid and can live outside in a sheltered frost free shady spot, but must be kept cool but dry in winter.

Not so ANGET, It flowered from the word , Go. There are. probably about 6 flowers still to come, but I was too impatient to wait.

This is a very pretty orchid, Siris. From the shape and size to the lovely colour.

Very nice.

Do you grow Bletilas, Siris? I bought a Bletilla striata 'Soryu' (Blue Dragon). These are my first attempt in hardy orchids. They say that they are easy to grow. That is why I bought couple of them.

Yes, KLAHANIE I have a Bletilla growing in the garden, only the one, unnamed, given to me by a neighbour. It is thankfully not showing out of the ground yet, as we had a stiff frost this morning.
