Pogonia ophioglossoides (ROSE POGONIA)


This charming little orchid grows in sphagnum bogs and other peaty places. We grow Rose Pogonia in mini-bogs and even self-watering containers. It’s unfussy as long as its soil is kept moist with rain or distilled water and will spread nicely in the right conditions. Perfect as a companion for Sarracenia sp. and other bog plants.

We are offering lab-propagated plants that are third year out-of-flask and grown for a full season in 2.5″ pots. The plants will have at least one shoot, but because they expand vegetively, likely more. Plants of a similar size/age have flowered in our nursery.
