A very rarely offered perennial. Completely hardy terrestrial orchid from India. Liking a moist situation in light shade and a soil of moderate fertility, this orchid will start into growth in mid spring. Leaves are lanceolate and deeply furrowed, pale green and around 20 cms long clasping the rigid stem which will rise to around 35 cms or so. The flowers are the obvious main attraction and these are borne at the stem terminus, around 15 in number. Colour is a rich dusky pink. It's really nice, you need one for your garden!
