Calanthe aristulifera is one of the rarest of the Japanese endemic species from the mountains of Japan's Kyushu island. Calanthe aristulifera forms an 18" wide clump of pleated, evergreen leaves topped in mid-spring with 15" tall flower spikes lined with small light pink flowers. We find a slightly moist organic-rich soil is best, although these are extraordinarily drought-tolerant.
