Why I Love this Flower: I Love Cymbidiums, because they tell me winter is on it's way!! I also love them for their beauty and elegance, you can arrange it on it's own, have them en mass in a vase or mixed in with other flowers. Anyway you use them, they always look stunning.
Another reason why I love them is for their longevity, with lasting up to 8 weeks as a cut flower, you can not ask for more than that!! Could you image having a bouquet of just cymbid's on natural stem lasting for 8 weeks???
I really love the array of colours they come in as well, with the Lime Green being up there with one of my top choices!!!
Is there a flower that gets you excited about the coming season???
