Known as "Tar-Beri" to the aborigines, and "Rock Lily" or "King Orchid" to other Australians, this magnificent orchid amazes one and all! It blooms extraordinarily flower-laden plumes, like bushy fox tails, of fragrant, creamy white flowers. Here in Santa Barbara, these plants grow wonderfully outdoors with the Cymbidiums
, however, many customers also report flowering success in a cool to intermediate greenhouse.
These loight-loving plants are very well adapted to garden and landscape use in sub-tropical areas. Two to three bulb plants, in four inch or five inch pots, are the base price size of $75. Large specimen plants, ideal for gardens, large greenhouses, and conservatories, are also available.
Temperature Tolerant. February - March blooming. Species from Australia.
