Stenoglottis Bill Fogarty
Enchanting miniature! An intriguing primary hybrid of two African species, Stenoglottis fimbriata
and Stenoglottis woodii
. The profuse, petite flowers bloom plume-like on upright stems and are pale pink with tiny magenta spots, blooming sequentially (mature buds towards the base open earlier than upper buds).
Deciduous! Like its parents, this hybrid is a deciduous perennial, seasonally losing all its leaves 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!
