Orchids amaze with the richness of flower colors

A flower in a pot is not an easy gift. If a person doesn't know how to take care of plants and doesn't like to, it can even upset them. But for those who like to have a garden on the windowsill, such a present will bring a lot of pleasure, especially when it comes to beautiful flowering species, such as orchids. However, the question of what kind of orchid to give may arise. What do the colors of orchids mean and what wishes can such a gift carry?

Welke's Floral Blog suggests choosing from common orchid species that are easier to care for. These can be phalaenopsis, dendrobium, and cymbidium. The flowers of these orchids come in red, pink, white, blue, green, purple, orange, and yellow. Here's what they mean in the language of flowers.


It is better to give blue orchids to those whom you consider to be unique and special to you. This flower will symbolize the natural beauty that can be found in a person, both external and internal. In addition to beauty and uniqueness, the blue orchid is also a symbol of spirituality.


Red orchids represent determination, courage, perseverance, desire, passion, and love. Thus, these flowers are suitable for a gift to those you love dearly or to those whose strong character you want to emphasize.


This color symbolizes tenderness and grace, as well as a sense of happiness and fertility. It is good to give such flowers in honor of significant family events, such as a wedding or the birth of a child. They are good for decorating children's rooms. In addition, pink orchids are a great idea for a gift for young women as they will symbolize their youth and beauty.


White is the color of purity, innocence, humility, beauty and elegance. It is a good gift for a bride for a wedding. It is also good to give such flowers to people you sincerely respect, such as older relatives.


These orchids were most popular in the Victorian era when the flower itself was associated with wealth, power, and royalty. Thus,  all these meanings were transferred to purple orchids. Give them to those you admire and deeply respect and who have unquestionable authority and a significant impact on you.


The sunny color is associated with optimism and happiness, symbolizing joy, friendship and hope for success. Therefore, a yellow orchid can be presented to a good friend. In particular, you can send it to someone who is far away from you. Such flowers are also a wish for good mood and inspiration and are suitable for creative people.


Success, emotions, creativity, enthusiasm, courage, and pride are the meanings associated with orange orchids. Such a flower will be a good gift on the occasion of the completion of some great thing in a person's life: from renovating an apartment to starting your own business or getting promoted.


The color associated with the exuberance of nature will be a good wish for good luck, longevity, health, and money. It is customary to give green orchids to someone you wish success to, especially in their career. That is why they are such a good solution for office decoration.
