Bletilla 'Summer Sunshine' is a superb summer-flowering seed-grown strain of the Chinese Bletilla ochracea, originally shared with us by orchid breeder Hideka Kobayashi, which we subsequently named. Bletilla 'Summer Sunshine' starts flowering for us in June and continues into September, peaking in mid-July. The 20" tall stalks are each adorned with light yellow flowers, each highlighted by a darker yellow pattern in the lip. Our offerings are our own seed grown plants that have been selected for our quality standards after their first flowering.
