Cymbidium orchids are simply stunning and are a rewarding spectacular living flower arrangement right throughout the cooler months.
Their hardiness sets them apart from many of the more tender, tropical orchids such as slipper orchids (Paphiopedilum) and moth orchids (Phalaenopsis), which need warm or hot house conditions outside the tropics.
Cymbidiums are native to Asia and northern Australia but grow well in southern regions when protected from extreme cold and grow in warmer areas when grown in a sheltered, shady position.
Cymbidium Orchids need to be grown in a pot in Orchid potting mix in a shaded garden area or a shadehouse. They are easy care and are available in an array of colours. The most commonly grown cymbidium orchids bud in winter and flower from May through August and September to produce stunning long-lasting flowers. Once in flower the plants can be brought indoors into a bright room where the blooms can be enjoyed for many weeks.
