Calanthe Hybrida


Calanthe Hybrid orchids have the longest flowering time of all hardy orchids. They come in an almost endless variety of colors and their evergreen leaves make them an ideal plant to use to lighten up a dark shady spot in the garden.  They even have perfumed flowers!   Unfortunately at the moment we’re not able to deliver plants by color but we can assure you that every plant that you purchase will have either beautiful pink or yellow flowers!  For more information see:  Orchid CarePublications and Quality.
