St Valentine’s Day
Gift your loved one with the exotic orchid bloom this Valentine’s day, a living gift that will be cherished for many weeks to come!
The exotic orchid has long been associated with love and elegance throughout various cultures and time periods. One of the major orchid genera is Paphiopedilum. The name is derived from the word “Paphos” which is the name of the temple where the Greek goddess of love, Aphrodite, was worshiped. During the Victorian age, orchids were only found in the tropics and were extremely rare. Therefore, Victorians would collect exotic orchids as a sign of luxury and refined taste. When given as a gift, the more rare the orchid, the deeper your love and passion was for the receiver.
