hardy perennial orchids will grow in your garden
When you hear "orchid", do you automatically think of the tropical species that require a greenhouse or indoor growing?
Did you know there is a whole class of orchids known as "hardy terrestrial orchids that are just as exotic as tropical orchids and will grow easily in your garden?"
Wild orchids survive sub-zero temperatures
You can grow exotic terrestrial orchids that actually survive and thrive in frigid climates as far North as Alaska. Some require temperatures at or below freezing for several months each year to maintain proper growth, much like tulips or daffodils.
Many gardeners are surprised to learn that these exotic plants can not only survive, but also thrive… even in northern climates.
No matter where you live, a beautiful collection of hardy orchids could be the next amazing addition to your own outdoor perennial garden!
This is not to say that terrestrial orchids can be planted anywhere and expected to grow. To be successful, it is absolutely necessary to plan and prepare a site to meet the specific requirements for these native orchid species to flourish.
