Meaning of Orchid Flower

Orchid flowers get their name from the Greek orchis, meaning "testicle", from the appearance of subterranean tuberoids of the genus Orchis. The orchid flower means ecstasy.

One orchid genus, Vanilla, is commercially important, used as a foodstuff flavoring, the source of vanilla. No plant family has as many different flowers as the orchid family.

There are over twenty-five thousand species of orchid flowers, more than any other flower. Because of their strangeness, we have cast many names upon them: Adder's Tongue, Ram's Horn, Lady's Slipper.
