Plant Type: Perennials
Green, lance shaped leaves edged in creamy yellow. Gracefully arching stems support the small, white, orchid like flowers heavily spotted and streaked with purple. A unique perennial for the shade that provides late season interest. Flowers appear in late summer, and are a welcome site, as many other plants are finished for the season by this time.
Growing & Maintenance Tips:
Tricrytis performs best in humus-rich, evenly moist soil in partial to full shade. It is very long-lived and easy to grow. It tends to be a late-riser, so don't worry if you don't see this plant coming up with other perennials in early spring. Your patience will be greatly rewarded. This species spreads to form wide clumps. Division is recommended every 3-4 years in spring to maintain vigor.
