Bletilla striata 'Kuchibeni' is a hard-to-find but easy-to-grow cultivar from Japan, distinguished by its two-tone flowers. The upper part of the flower is white while the lip is a contrasting purple. The foliage and growth habit are the same as in the species. I have seen this occasionally incorrectly offered as Bletilla striata 'Alba', which should be solid white.
