Cymbidium goeringii


Small pseudobulbs give rise to arching, grass-like leaves and attractive, fragrant, emerald-green flowers.

A true miniature species, Cymbidium goeringii is an adorable hardy orchid found in temperate central and eastern Asia. Small pseudobulbs give rise to strappy, arching, grass-like leaf blades; and one-to-three attractive, emerald-green flowers that carry a fragrance reminiscent of jasmine and lily-of-the-valley. It's no surprise that this is a perennial favourite of many cultures.
