OrchidsOrchids are one of nature's most beautiful flowers, and one of our favourite choices for adding a little extra touch of luxury and the exotic to bouquets and arrangements.
If you are looking for a beautiful gift for an orchid lover, here are our favourites using four of the most popular types of orchid.
1. Phalaenopsis Orchid : Available all year round, the Phalaenopsis is arguably the most popular choice of orchid for sending best wishes to a friend or loved one. This beautiful single stem plant in a stylish ceramic pot will look beautiful in any room in the home.
2. Cymbidium Orchid : This variety of orchid is visually very striking, with very distinctive shaped heads in opulent colours. We love to use them as a feature stem in our most luxurious bouquets, but very often individual flowers are cut and wired for wedding bouquets and corsages.
3. Dendrobium Orchid : A dainty and very pretty orchid with star-shaped flowers, the trailing stems of the Dendrobium are a very popular addition to beautiful arrangements, as well as to wedding bouquets.
4. Vanda Orchid : A truly stunning orchid available in a range of rich, vibrant colours, this less commonly known variety is definitely one to create impact. We used hundreds of them in our gold medal-winning RHS Chelsea Flower Show exhibit, and love to add them to bouquets for a bit of extra colour and for a luxurious feel.
