Stenoglottis Bill Fogarty
Enchanting! An intriguing primary hybrid of two African species, Stenoglottis fimbriata
and Stenoglottis woodii
. The petite flowers are a delicate pink color with tiny pink spots, and bloom sequentially on plume-like flower spikes.
Deciduous! Like its parents, this hybrid is a deciduous perennial, typically loosing all its leaves seasonally, while the subterranean bulbs rest before the next growth season. This means that for a brief time their pots appear bare, but soon the past leaves are replaced by new rosettes of foliage. So, don't throw this out when all the leaves fall off - it's not dead, it's just resting!
Temperature Tolerant. August - September blooming.
