Calopogon Orchids

Calopogon orchids

Calopogon orchids are also known as grass pinks and bog orchids. They are some of the easiest wild orchids to grow outdoors to USDA zone 6 (maybe colder) and warmer zones. The orchid dies back to a corm for the winter and, despite its delicate beauty, it is a hardy orchid and a native plant.

These are pink varieties of Calopogon sp. (tuberosus/ pulchellus). The orchid's name comes from the Latin meaning "beautiful beard" which has golden tips.
