Orchids grow in every county except in the desert regions and in the Artic and grow in virtually every colour and shape.
Cymbidium Orchid Flower
Historically as a cut flower orchids have long been a symbol of the mysterious and exotic. Orchids are as diverse in fragrance as they are in shape and colour and have long beent he symbol of opulence and courtship.

Orchids are perennial flowering plants and belong to the genus Orchidacae, having as many as 30,000 species and over 80,000 hybrids. such massive numbers catapults it to the most superior flowering plant family in the world even greater than the sunflower family Compositae and the even the huge grass family of Graminae.

The Cymbidium Orchid is one of the most successful commercial varieties being probably the best known and most widely available. The Cymbidium Orchid is popular for use in corsages.
Phalaenopsis Orchid Flowers
Some of the flowers known as Singapore Orchids belong to the Dendrobium family. The Oncidium family is also popular for cut flowers and the yellow 'Golden Shower' variety is widely known and used. It is possible to buy these flower all year round, and are exported from Singapore in a phial of water. Dial A Hamper gets deliveries of Singapore Orchids a couple of times a week and we have access to them over and above this order fromflower wholesalers based in Perth.

Like all flowers, cut at least 2-4 centimeters of at an angle and place them in water, like many flowers the stems should never be allowed to dry out hence why they are transported in water. If an Orchid becomes limp, you can submerge the whole flower in water for 30-60 minutes and this will plump the flower and stem back up.
