Description
Big Bob - similar to striata but with larger flowers and this plant is more floriferous. Will arrive in a 4" pot - PLANT.

These terrestrial orchids native to China, Japan and North America are lovely in the garden and make long-lasting cut flowers with 5-10 clusters of corsage-type flowers on each 8"-12" stem. Prefers well-drained, rich soil, sun to light shade and will perennialize when planted in a suitable location. Also great in planters and pots. Top-sized, 2-3 nose, tuber-shaped rootstocks; 4 per sq. ft.; zones 6-10 (we've received reports of even colder whz!); some of the newer types are sports of others and sometimes revert back to the original type.
