Since mankind first became fascinated by beautiful things, orchids have
exerted a potent allure for, unlike gemstones and precious metals where
scarcity is often a feature of their value, the 'Royal Family of Plants'
achieves a diversity of beauty, colour and form that has little to do with
rarity, but rather an expression of nature's genius to dazzle and enthral.
Indeed, far from being rare, there are more than 20,000 species of orchids
and the genus is one of the largest groups of flowering plants in the world.
Since the dawning of pre-history the subtly mesmerising living flora that
make up the orchid family have exerted a world-wide fascination. Like exotic
butterflies their beauty and mystery is fleeting yet, unlike lifeless jewels
and precious metals, the loveliness of orchids lives and evolves. Intense
international competition exists amongst breeders as they develop new
hybrids, resulting in stunning shapes, colours and blooms.
