Bletilla Brigantes 'Rickey'

21st June 2017

A named clone of the hybrid between B. striata and B.ochracea raised originally by Richard Eveden and registered in 1994. I got this plant from Lanesidce Orchids who say that it was called 'Rickey' because it was B. ochracea 'Rickey' that was used to make the hybrid.
Bletilla ochracea is a variable species and all I can find out about 'Rickey' is that is has a dense dusting of red spots on the reverse of the outer whorl of segments.
