Orchids: A Distinct and Delicate Rarity

Orchids: A Distinct and Delicate Rarity

Author: John D.

Orchidelirium was a period during the Victorian era when the world was struck with “flower madness”. The wealthy of the world would send explorers to the corners of the Earth with the sole purpose of collecting and discovering new varieties of orchids.

It is not hard to see the beauty that entranced those Victorians. The orchid’s distinction comes from it’s delicately feminine structure whose refined exoticism lends to it’s timeless elegance. The orchid is unlike and incomparable to any other flower. In ancient Greece, the orchid symbolized love, beauty, and wisdom. In China, it symbolizes refinement and innocence. We believe the orchids represents a rare and luxurious beauty.

The “flower madness” of long ago is alive and well here at, and just in time for summer. Our designers have hand crafted new arrangements for your home, office or garden. Check out our Summer 2014 Orchid Collection.
