Bletilla x yokohama 'Kate' is a Bill Mathis hybrid...a cross of Bletilla striata 'Big Bob' x Bletilla formosana. Bletilla 'Kate' makes a typical clump of upright, sword-like, pleated, green leaves. Starting in late spring, terminal spikes reach 40" tall with an open cluster of medium lavender flowers, each highlighted by a dark purple stripe down the back center of each petal and a very dark purple lip surrounding a yellow throat. If we had those last few symptoms we'd call the doctor but, in this case, just grab a shovel and everything will be all right.
