Our Cymbidium Orchid Selection
The four main colour ranges are Pink, Green, White and Yellow. Within that colour palette there are many different shades and characteristics.
Our Orchid flowers also come in the novelty hues of Orange, Brown and Burgundy.
Cymbidium orchids have beautiful blooms with a central mouth or throat that makes the flower appear to be singing. This throat is often speckled, sometimes a similar colour to the other petals or it can be a complete contrast. These striking waxy flowers can last three to four weeks in a vase – and longer. We have 65 different varieties, and 9 are exclusive to us.
The cymbidiums orchid derives its name from "cymba", the Latin word for boat, which describes the central feature of these extraordinary flowers. In the wild, cymbidiums can be found in tropical and subtropical Asia and northern Australia. These exquisite blooms speak of romantic corsages and dramatic bouquets. They also represent love, luxury, beauty and strength. In ancient Greece, orchids were associated with virility.
