Orchids

Winter orchids

Given their glamorous appearance and considerable cachet, orchids make impressive gifts.

Their thick, waxy flowers last four to six weeks, often longer. Many orchids make good house or patio plants ― no steamy hothouse environment is necessary to keep them happy.

With reasonable care, they'll bloom again next winter and for years to come.
