I ordered these cut purple orchids on April 12th, and they shipped from Florida that day. My MIL received them in Oklahoma on the 14th, and they were in beautiful condition.
The flowers shipped with individual tubes for each stem, so they were kept very fresh. Also, when I stopped by my in-law’s house for Easter more than a week later, the orchids still looked fabulous! I will definitely order from this seller again if they keep their prices competitive. Spending about $30 total is great for quality orchids!
