Graffiti orchids are available year round.
Graffiti orchids boast pure white petals streaked with rich purple markings. Their petals are formed bilaterally symmetrical, a shape signature of the orchid flower. Known as much for their fragrant perfume as for their beauty, orchids are prized for both their beauty and fragrance, which varies from subtly sweet and grass like to rich vanilla and spice depending upon type.
The elegant shape of graffiti orchids makes them ideal for use as décor on wedding cakes and other pastries prepared for celebratory occasions. Use as garnish on tropical cocktails and smoothies or float atop punch bowls. Use as garnish when plating fish, grain salads or fresh fruit preparations.
Orchids are one of the oldest flowering plants and have a vast history, recent studies show certain variates of orchids grew as far back as Mesozoic era during the time of the dinosaurs. With the Victorian era came the onset of orchid hunters who popularized the orchid by going on expeditions to tropical regions of the world in search of new orchid varieties to bring back to England. Orchid hunting proved to be extremely dangerous not only because of the natural dangers of the jungles but as result of the fierce competition that occurred between the hunters. Today, orchids can be found growing in nearly all regions of the world with the exception of Antarctica.
