Encyclia Orchid


Encyclia orchid  refers to the shape of the flower’s lip. The lateral lobes of the lip form a circle around plant’s column, so these orchids are classified under the genus name Encyclia, which comes from enkykleomai (Greek for “to encircle”). This genus consists of over 240 species, and boasts a wide range of shapes and sizes of flowers. Some species produce large, showy blossoms,while others produce smaller, not-so-showy blossoms, but the majority of Encyclias produce a fragrance.
