Mountain Orchids

Sinningia leucotricha

This is an attractive and unusual tuberous species from Brazil. From the tubers emerge from one to several erect stems, each bearing several heavily silver-haired leaves. Flowers are tubular, salmon-pink to orange-pink and are formed in loose whorls, as do the leaves.

This plant prefers a dry rest during the winter months. At that time, it will also lose its foliage. Despite this, it is easy to grow. It is even known to be a good garden plant in southern California.

Young but blooming size plants, in 2 1/2" pots.
