Cymbidium West Down "Winter White"

Cymbidium West Down "Winter White"
This beautiful Cymbidium, caught our attention at the recent RHS Plant and Design Show, Cymbidium West Down "Winter White". Cymbidium orchids are very popular, especially with beginners or for use in the home, and their showy flowers can last for a number of weeks. Ideally they are best grown in a cool conservatory and placed in the garden for the summer. As you can see from our photos this week they are generally winter and spring flowering although some varieties will flower in the summer and autumn as well.

The typical standard varieties such as Cymbidium West Down "Winter White" will grow into quite large plants showing off their large flowers. They should be potted on in the spring when flowering has finished roughly every 2 or 3 years.
