Bletilla striata 'Tri-Lips' (Tri-Lips Perennial Ground Orchid)

Bletilla striata 'Tri-Lips'

Bletilla striata 'Tri-Lips' (Tri-Lips Perennial Ground Orchid)

The name of this Hardy Ground Orchid in Japanese means "amazing lipstick," referring to the strong pink flush around the lip of its small white, Cattleya-like flower. Like its other B. striata cousins, this one is easy to grow in the lightly shaded garden or in containers and is long-blooming. As clumps of 'Kuchibeni' expand gradually, the effect is sensational, especially massed under deciduous trees. All Ground Orchids need a heavy winter mulch in Zone 6.
