Calopogon is a small genus of cold hardy orchids that are native to the US and Canada (Zone 4-9).
Calopogons are bog plants, native to consistently moist areas along with other typical marsh plants. As such, Calopogons require a consistently moist spot along the edge of a body of water or in a bog garden. They require more or less full sun. I grow them in a peat or peat-sand mix which is kept moist.
These are seed-grown plants. These are growing in a bed and about 75% of them bloomed pure white (Alba). The other 25% are the bright pink which is customary for the species. The alba were grown from a selfing and got mingled with the pinks when we planted the seedlings - so they're a mixed lot now.
Price is per 1 mature tuber, sent unpotted - ready for planting - once the ground here thaws.
