This unique variegated form of the hardy ground orchid comes from Japan's famed Gotemba Nursery. The typically long, green, pleated leaves are streaked with gold and, like the species, the clumps are topped in May and June with 2' tall floral spikes of terminal dark purple flowers...an incredible color combination. Bletilla striata 'Gotemba Stripes' fares well in both dry (once established) and moist soils.
