Blue Orchards

Irvine, California

The symbolism of blue orchids goes all the way back to ancient Greece. Greeks believed the bold blue flowers were a symbol of virility and strength. The Aztecs also associated blue orchids with strength. Ancient inhabitants of China used the plant medicinally, to treat coughs and lung disorders, according to Online Flowers Guide.
