The orchid fits almost every style, so this beauty deserves the title 'perfect flower'. There are more than 25,000 varieties, but at your florist you usually see the tropical beauties. The flower comes in many beautiful colors, from the almost powdery pastel shades to sweet candy pink or bright white. Even the tiger prints, cow spots and stripes have been thought of.
