Origin and symbolism
All colours of the rainbow

Cymbidium are strong flowers and they will last for a long time indoors;up to 2-3 weeks
Flowers for kissing
Round or pointed; these orchid-like flowers can be easily recognised by the three petals and three sepals. The middle petal is also called the ‘lip’; a flower to kiss! Insects like it too. They use this ‘landing spot’ to reach the inside of the flower. Mother Nature has given this a lot of thought; she has given the lip a more exuberant colour and eye-catching markings to attract the right insects.
Cymbidiums give off a mild sweet scent?The philosopher Confucius even called the flower “the king of fragrances”.
