Among the orchid species available, fresh cut cymbidium orchids are a rave in today's flower design.
My Florida based importer has gone to Holland to find a dependable source. They are flown every week to USA via Miami and the varieties below are usually available.
I love to design with cymbidium orchids, each bloom is a work of art. Great for weddings. They display great in cylinder vases so often used for modern flower arrangements
The individual blooms are used in Corsages, Boutanniers, and all types of flower arrangements.
Cymbidium orchids are extremely long lasting. It not uncommon to look good for 3 weeks. If you plan to use the stem inside a vase, make sure the vase diameter is not too small.
If you need smaller orchids, consider using mini cymbidium. They are exquisite
Many Internet companies sell them without specifying the size. Size matters, because the bigger size will have more blooms
Make sure to find out what size you are buying.
If you expect to match colors, be aware that shades of colors might come a little darker or lighter.
If Holland Cymbidium orchid's supply dries up in summer time, New Zealand orchids can be obtained.
