I got it at a swap - i think it is in the ginger lily family? Went out to water the greenhouse tonight and found this blooming! :)

ya know what, i think it is Jacob's ladder, now that i think about it - anyone else got any ideas?
Rosemary, it looks like a bletilla orchid. They do well in rock gardens. See the link. Compare the leaves and blooms.

Rosey; Could it be a hardy orchid? If so you might have got it from Michelle-Lynn's girl.
Terry - i think you are right! so, now the question is....did it come from Nelson or Michelle or who?!?! :)
i am reading the swap thread now - and i believe i need to put it on my calendar. even though i probly won't get to get anything together to swap (stimulus - grants - overtime) - i can still come visit!
Hi Rosey - it is Bletilla (ble-TIL-la) striata (Hardy Orchid). You did get it from me. I have 5 different varieties and they are absolutely gorgeous. I am glad you are coming to the swap. It doesn't matter if you bring anything. See if I have anything on my list that you would like. They are going fast.
I may have an alternate solution for the plant swap. I am checking into it today. I will keep everyone posted.
What 'cha tryin' to do....induce a freakin' stroke? The last time I heard those words it took a round of penicillin to clear things up! LOL!
LMAO at you Nelson!!!
