(syn: Calanthe striata) Calanthe sieboldii, a hard-to-find Japanese native terrestrial orchid, has been a superb performer and one of our favorite calanthes. The evergreen foliage (except below 10 degrees F) composes a vigorous 6" tall x 15" wide clump of deeply pleated leaves. In spring, the bloom stalks rise from the ground to reach 20". Along the scape are dozens of small pansy-like flowers of bright yellow...quite stunning. Calanthe sieboldii prefers well-drained, slightly moist, woodland conditions and are proven to be quite easy to grow. After severe winters, they may be very late to emerge.
