Notes:
Winter dormant pseudobulbs produce exquisite pink and white orchid flowers with yellow blotched throats in April then long pleated leaves for the summer. They slowly multiply to form colonies. Plant in gritty, loamy, well-drained soil in bright shade with ample summer moisture but keep dry in winter. Can be planted outside or grown in pots. 'Blakeway Philips' is one of the easiest and hardiest selections.
