    Default Bletilla striata 'Big Bob'

    I bought a few bulbs from an online vendor awhile back and decided to put them in the ground. this one was the only survivor, however, it is doing super well and now has three or four new plants coming up alongside it. After this summer I should have a nice size plant throwing multiple spikes.

    Very nice.

    I’m quite surprised that you can grow and bloom this species as south as Florida. They grow and bloom very well in spring here in Maryland after the frost.
