A Brief History of The Cymbidium Orchid

Updated: May 6, 2019

A rose by any other name would smell just as sweet. Maybe this was okay for Juliet back in the 1600’s, but she wasn’t as picky as the Orchidville gang. Heck, she probably didn't have as many options. But that’s exactly what we’re gonna get to see today. Get ready people, because today, I present to you; the Cymbidium Orchid. Exotic. Rare. Eye-Catching. Growing amidst rock solid adversity at the bases of mountains, its small frame can mislead you about the impact it could have. With the gurgle of mountain springs and the soft fresh winds of the icy peaks, no background could be as picturesque or as befitting of such an iconic plant. But both of us know that the Cymbidium orchid is not just any plant.

All of this and more comes to mind when you feast your eyes on this rare gem. Native to the foothills of the larger-than-life Himalayas, this hot beauty rather likes it cool and calm. Blooming once every year, the fully opened petals last frozen in their ethereal beauty for up to 3 months. However, they need just the right amount of light to bloom, reflecting the incandescence of the sun’s rays for as long as they last. Their petals are a work of delicate finery, a kaleidoscope of colourful hues, all blended into their shades in nature’s signature masterpiece ensemble. From purple, to pink and even white; these floral riots come in an entrancing variety, so that everyone’s tastes are well taken care of.

This could just be your next best choice for an option as a gift for that special someone, as a floral piece for your house or office, and even as a keep sake for good times’ sake. It can literally be whatever you want it to be. Yes, it’s that good. The Cymbidium Orchid’s value is going to stay with you for a long time even after the deed is done, staying pretty for more than 8 weeks after you cut it. That’s more than we can say for most beautiful things, and at Orchidville gang, we know beautiful. If you’ve never thought of doing something special with the Cymbidium, now you know. Don’t wait any longer for this glamorous flower to fade away.
