Chinese Hardy Ground Orchid
Zones: 6 to 9
Spread: 12″ to 15″
Bloom Time: Late spring / early summer
If you’ve ever wanted to grow orchids in your garden but don’t live in the tropics, the next entry on my shade loving perennials list may be for you.
These Chinese hardy ground orchids are quite easy to grow and really do look like orchids.
They grow up to 24″ high (depending on the variety) and will develop many blooms per plant once they are established.
The only trouble I have with them is that rabbits really like the leaves!
