This garden orchid is part of Phytesia's Trendy garden series and comes packed in a 1 liter container, flowering size plant, 1-2 shoots. The Calanthe discolor will flourish into a Brown flower from May to June up to 30-50 cm. This Half-Hardy (-10°C) orchid will survive the winter if you leave it in a Semi-shade location of your garden.
Calanthe sieboldii is without doubt the most spectacular species of all the Japanese terrestrial orchids. This hardy orchid produces a cluster of large, glossy, pale to lemon yellow flowers, sometimes dotted with brown on the labellum, with varying levels of scent. It is also characterised by a very long flowering time for a hardy orchid.
This hybrid between Calanthe discolor and Calanthe izu-insularis is now available from Phytesia. In spring, the flowers release a wonderful fragrance of cloves. The colour of the flower varies, including combinations of white and red, yellow and red, pink and red etc. – every plant is different.
