Description: Ground orchids are common species of Orchid which blooms round the year. This easily grown terrestrial herb has pretty, arching broad leaves with prominent parallel veins and a few or large cluster of small flowers at the end of a long stalk that can grow as tall as 1 meter. The flowers are seen from the more common purple to white, yellow, peach, pink and magenta shades. The leaves emerge from round pseudo bulbs that become increasingly multiple and larger as the orchid matures. Ground orchids can be grown as potted plants and also do well in beds and borders.
