Stronger Plants With More Flowers

As a breeder of garden orchids, Anthura has a constant focus on the quality of Garden Orchids throughout the year. The quality of the Garden Orchids is once again better this season due to better crossings and an improved cultivation method. The plants are stronger, give more flowers and bloom longer.

Sustainability in Packaging and Transportation

A taupe-colored cultivation pot replaces the black plastic. This makes it easier to recycle if it is thrown away with plastic waste. The renewed pot cover has many advantages: the preserved pot cover is smaller and less complicated in shape, so 50% less material is needed. Therefore, the total load of Garden Orchids during the transportation is higher (+43%!). This results in fewer emissions during transport and considerably lower transport costs per plant.

Presentation is Key

The pot cover is not only more durable, but this packaging is also a nicer presentation on the shelf. The look and feel of these garden tropical beauties are similar to before and thus recognizable.

It differs in its water-repellent coating on a vegetable basis, so it remains highly recyclable and can simply be disposed of with the old paper.

So let it be spring already! Garden Orchids will guarantee to blossom fabulous flowers every year. Here's a line-up of the available assortment.

Cypripediums

Cypripediums, also known as lady's slippers, flower from mid-May until June. This queen of the hardy garden orchids features large flowers and brilliant colors. Cypripedium is not afraid of extreme cold, it even needs it in order for its annual growth cycle. 

Pleione

In April and May, Pleione is the first to show up. In the garden, these orchids have a truly special appearance, figuratively casting a shadow over other garden plants when in flower. With its fresh color, Pleione is easy to combine and a good choice to make your own tropics.

Bletilla

This garden orchid can rightly be described as spectacular because of the beautiful flowers on its long stems. Over the years, the flower size and the number of flowers per stem have increased, resulting in an abundance of flowers per plant. Bletilla originally came from the Far East but is now completely acclimatized to Western Europe. Its flowers bloom just before summer, in June or July, for up to four or five weeks and you can enjoy them all summer long!

Calanthe

Calanthe is a contraction of the Greek words 'Kalos', which stands for beautiful, and 'Anthos', which means flower. And that is exactly what it is, a plant with beautiful flowers.

Epipactis

Epipactis is very hardy to over -20°C. Epipactis is also called wasp orchid because the flowers are pollinated by wasps. This winter-hardy orchid is for the more experienced gardener and it can grow up to 80 cm high? When it has finished flowering at the end of the summer, it briefly retracts its petals until the following year. Then it just comes around again.
