    In North of Vietnam, we like the cym plants are bloom in spring.

    In about 500 BC, Confucius compared the Cymbidium flower to the virtues of education:

    "A solitary Orchid, stands, adorning the side of a mountain, perfumes the air even in the absence of appreciation. A true scholar, learned in morality and philosophy, is always a gentleman, even in the absence of wealth."

    In Vietnam, the Traditional Cymbidium is considered "the gift of respect and friendship".

    I introduce to you about some Traditional Cymbidium species of Vietnam following:

    Vietnamese people often say: " King enjoy Cym, Mandarin enjoy Tea", it means, no one is allowed to enjoy cym,except the King. Now, enjoy Traditional cym has become a cultural tradition of Vietnamese peoples.

    This is cymbidium siense Vietnam "Hoang Vu", "Hoang" means "Gold", "Vu" means "dance", we called that because flowers are yellow and petal are dancing!!!!!







    cymbidium siense Vietnam "Hoang Vu" bloom in spring, very very fragrant!

    this is cym.siense Vietnam "Hoang Diem". hihi....I don't know what the translation to English, but can know:

    "Hoang" means Yellow

    "Diem" means Point

    that means: flowers are yellow and tongue of flowers have red points.

    very fragrant
