As we continue to preview a few of our new plants for 2015, here is a plant we’ve lusted after for years, and are finally able to share. Bletilla striata ‘Ogon’ is a very rare, gold-leafed selection of the hardy orchid. It’s hard to really capture the color well with my photographic skills, but it’s really an amazing plant.
In the world of giant elephant ears, here’s one you don’t want to miss. Colocasia gigantea ‘Laosy Giant’ is an Alan Galloway selection from where else, Laos. In our trials, the leaves are about 1/3 larger than Colocasia ‘Thailand Giant’, although the overall clump size is nearly the same. Thanks to Alan for both posing for this photo and for allowing us to introduce this new giant elephant ear. Remember that the new plants will go up on the website in 2 days…the countdown begins!
