Blue Dragon Terrestrial Orchid
Discovered years ago in Japan’s Wakayama region and plagued by rumors of being too temperamental, this highly refined seed grown terrestrial Orchid is still hard to find, but easy to grow. Attractive ribbed Iris-like leaves and slow spreading rhizomes produce an appealing medium green clump that promotes enchanting Cattleya-shaped blue-violet blossoms with wide open mouths and ornately pleated floral pouches. A beacon of sophistication for containers or jewel-box plantings, ‘Soryu’ appreciates dappled shade, heavy winter mulch plus well-drained evenly moist sites, while abiding occasional drought.
Size: 15" – 2' 0" high x 12" wide.
