FACTS & HISTORY: While orchids mean thoughtfulness, refinement, fertility, beauty, charm, and love, they're the perfect bloom to celebrate all of life's precious moments.
Orchids are magnificent flowers that first appeared nearly 200 million years ago and have since spread from the equator to the Arctic Circle and from the Himalayas to Australia. Researchers dated orchids from the Jurassic period to the Mesozoic era (195–136 million years ago) and the Cenozoic period (64 million years ago).
