Want to find out more about orchids before you choose the bloom for you? The orchid family is diverse and widespread, with varieties that grow all over the world. Orchids make up one of the world’s largest families of flowering plants, with more than 20,000 varieties, including cymbidium orchids and phalaenopsis orchids. While white orchids are extremely popular, orchids can also be extremely colourful, displaying dramatic markings and dazzling shapes. Some common characteristics among orchids include a bilateral symmetry of the flower, upward-facing blooms, fused stamens and carpels, and particularly small seeds.
With some care and consideration, orchids can offer wonderful, long-lasting cut flower arrangements. When you first receive your orchids, place them in a cool place to rest. As there are so many varieties of orchid, it can be a good idea to research care tips for your particular variety before you start your arrangement. As a general rule, you will need to trim the stems and then place them in a clean vase with water. Be sure to change the water every few days and keep the arrangement away from sources of heat and cool draughts.
