Dendrobium orchids have been among Hawaii’s most popular plants since they were introduced from the Philippines in 1896. They have since become the single most valuable commercial flower in Hawaii. Visitors to the Hawaiian Islands will notice orchids throughout their vacation – they may receive a fresh orchid lei upon arrival, or enjoy a tropical cocktail with a fresh orchid hanging on the lip of their glass.
Carnations debuted as a cultivated flower over 2,000 years ago. While it is known to be grown primarily in the Asia and European areas of the globe, Theophrastus of Ancient Greece had an interest in this flower and described it as dianthis due to its divine texture and overall beauty. Ancient Greece had derived the term carnation from the term coronation and was often found and used in crowns and other ceremonial occasions with flower and leaf garlands.
