THE MEANING & SYMBOLISM OF orchid

The most highly coveted of ornamental plants, the
delicate, exotic and graceful orchid represents love,
luxury, beauty and strength. In ancient Greece, orchids
were associated with virility. In fact, Greek women believed
that if the father of their unborn child ate large, new orchid
tubers, the baby would be a boy. If the mother ate small orchid
tubers, she would give birth to a girl.

During the Victorian era, orchid symbolism shifted to luxury,
and today this sense of magnificence and artful splendor
continues, with orchids representing rare and delicate beauty.
The 14th wedding anniversary flower, pink orchids convey pure
affection, and the popular cattelya orchid represents mature charm.
