Cymbidiums are one of the Orchidaceae family's best-known members. Cymbidiums include some 40 native species, as well as thousands of cultivars. The flowers are native to Southeast Asia, Japan, Taiwan, Indonesia, China, the Philippines and Australia. Their name derives from the Greek word kymbe, meaning "boat," and refers to the blooms' hollowed lips.
