Nun Orchid

Phaius tankervilliae)

Nun Orchid (Phaius tankervilliae) blooms in late winter/early spring. I have grown it successfully for several years in the greenhouse. A friend tried it in the ground (on my advice) and although it eventually came up the next summer, it never bloomed. Further reading has revealed to me that this orchid is only hardy in the costal south, zone 9/10. (Southern living advice)
