Most orchids offered as potted plants with distinct and unusual flowers are meant to be kept indoors. But why wouldn't you want separate and special orchids outdoors? Several growers have done their best to create a very beautiful orchid for outdoors
that fits our European climate for even a little frost in winter!
Examples of well-known orchids for the garden with beautiful flowers include the Cypripedium (Venus slipper), Dactylorhiza, Epipactis, Chinese Bletilla and the Calanthe.
Outdoor orchids are not (yet) widely used in European gardens, but of course that is a shame because these distinct outdoor plants exude the timeless beauty of nature! Definitely consider placing these plants in your garden.
