Late Spring

This semi hardy orchid is beautiful in the spring. It is easily grown from new pseudobulbs and produces pseudobulbs which flower the following year. It survives outside, but a heavy frost (-5 or below) will kill it. Each pseudobulbs developed from the old pseudobulb produces one leaf and a flower the following year. The plant needs to be raised up to appreciate the orchid flowers which last a long time.
