Hybrids
 

 

Orchid hybrids are some of the most beautiful types of flowers known. Because there are so many different colors and shapes of orchid flowers, there are unlimited opportunities to create new and exciting hybrids using genera other than just the classic types. This section offers the collector many of the newer, high quality and unusual types of flowers that we have come across in our travels or that we have created from our own breeding efforts here at Cal-Orchid.
