We are pleased to offer this hard-to-find, hardy, early spring-flowering orchid, Calanthe tricarinata. In early spring, this hardy orchid produces 15" tall spikes of small, exquisite yellow flowers with reddish-brown lips. Calanthe tricarinata prefers woodland conditions...moist but well-drained soils. The foliage of Calanthe tricarinata is evergreen in mild winters but may become deciduous when temperatures approach 10 degrees F. We have had some reports of success with this orchid from Zone 5. Calanthe tricarinata is featured in the book, "Rare and Precious Plants of China."
