What Are Orchids?

Welcome to Columbia Midtown Florist Floral 101 Section: What Are Orchids? Here we take an in-depth look at what exactly are orchids? What kind of flower is it? How does it grow? These questions will be answered and more.


 What are Orchids? 

The Orchidaceae commonly known as Orchids are a diverse and widespread family of flower plants, with blooms that are often colorful and luxurious.  Along with the Asteraceae, they are one of the two largest families of flowering plants, the Orchid family have many distinct and vibrant plants.

Out of all flowering plants the Orchids are considered to be most evolved. An orchid is a flowering plant that exhibits a unique reproductive strategy. All orchids have both the male and female reproductive structures fused into a single structure commonly called a "column" unlike most plants that have “pistils” and “stamens”. Many orchid flowers are simply stunning in several ways. They come in almost every color, shape, size, and many of them last for weeks if not months.

Our Orchid Collection is a comprise a unique group of some amazing orchids! Our Manhattan flower shop is widely regarded as one of the best NYC florist shop near midtown and that is because we focus on having exceptional floral arrangements that exceed our competition
