While many of us grow hardy orchids, there aren’t many that grow so well you can share plants with your garden friends. Bletillas aren’t just one of the easiest orchids to grow, they’re also one of the most vigorous. Below are our field production beds now, before plants are dug and potted. Many sites still recommend bletillas for the shade garden, but only put them there if you don’t want them to grow. We grow ours in at least 6 hours of sun, where, as you can see, they thrive and put on a far better floral show. Here, our compost amended beds stay on the average to dry side. Hardiness Zone 6a-9b, at least.
