Evidence of orchids appears from the age of the dinosaurs, 120 million
years ago, making them some of the first flowering plants. Orchids are
one of the largest and oldest families of plants in the world. For
centuries, people all over the world have fallen in love with their
flowers. Their bright colors, bizarre shapes, and enchanting smells have
evolved to attract pollinators. Many have a relationship with a single
type of insect or bird that can pollinate their flowers.
