Bletilla striata ‘Soryu’
at Digging Dog

Blue Dragon Terrestrial Orchid

Bletilla

Bletilla striata ‘Soryu’ partial shade  new plant

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.

Blooms April–July

Size: 15"–2' high x 12" wide; hardy to zone 6.

Bletilla striata ‘Soryu’ (P-1922)

Dainty blooms and unfurling leaves forge an early spring treasure trove of color and texture.

In the last ten days, we’ve experienced all kinds of weather at Digging Dog, including frosty mornings, torrential downpours, deafening hail, glorious sunny 70 º afternoons and even sleet! Thankfully spring is almost here and signs of its arrival grow more evident every day. Brimming with possibility, youthful growth and pristine delicacy, the early spring garden is a fresh treasure trove of color and texture. The plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye while walking through the nursery and along the surrounding borders. Hopefully, a handful of them will spark your interest as well! All of us here at the nursery wish you a very happy spring and countless happy afternoons digging in a garden!
