Chinese cymbidiums have been in cultivation for centuries throughout the orient, where they have been prized for their graceful leaves, dainty flowers and delicate fragrances. They are often used to landscape koi ponds.

Plants with variegated foliage or peloric flowers are highly prized, and draw significantly higher prices. They are remarkably easy to grow as they don’t require the cool, sunny conditions needed for standard cymbidiums.
