I am considering purchasing Bletilla yokohama kate but came to our database to check it out first. I see Bletilla striata kate listed as well as Beltilla yokohama but no Bletilla yokohama kate. I don't believe that Bletilla striata kate is the cultivar as I found reference to it being Ble. striata x Ble. formosana. The plant patent holder lists it as Bletilla yokohama 'Kate' PP19878 on their site. Is this a separate plant that needs to be added to the database or ???

Thanks for the report OldGardener. I've updated the entry and added the full RHS name into the Also Sold as field.
Hardy Ground Orchid (Bletilla Yokohama 'Kate')
