Cymbidium goeringii is an orchid that you can find in the wild in many places in Japan, China, and Sounth Korea.

Most Cymbidium goeringii you find in nature are brownish green and may not be very beautiful; however, in rare cases you can find beautiful ones. They can be pure orange, green, or chocolate in colour, having a round shape, and/or having many petals or frills.

Cymbidium enthusiasts have been enjoying finding and collecting those rare ones for a long time and put them in special pots. We Japanese sometimes appreciate salted Cymbidium flowers put into a cup of tea or hot water at festive events, like salted cherry flowers.

Recently, flowers even more beautiful than the ones found in the wild have been cultivated through breeding. Ranyuen collects many Cymbidium varieties for those who enjoy them for ornament or for tasting.
