Hybridized for flower shows in Japan, this seed strain of hardy terrestrial orchids (Calanthe discolor x Calanthe izu-insularis) is now available in the US. Perfect candidates for the woodland garden, the evergreen, pleated leaves mature in the fall and remain during most winters. In spring, the 1' flower stalks emerge, then become clothed in flowers with a wonderful clove-like scent. The flower color may include bicolor combinations of white and red, yellow and red, pink and red, etc...each plant is different.
