Their colors are so pleasant to the eyes and they can truly give us relaxation.

Ladies probably know how it feels like whenever they receive flowers from the people they love. It might be a simple gift for some, but for other people, it’s a classic way to express your love to someone.

There many kinds of flowers.

All of them are beautiful but there are ones that are really popular like orchids. These flowers are also one of the oldest flower plants.

Did you know that there are more than 30,000 types of orchids? Among them are Dendrobium Orchid, Phalaenopsis Orchid, Vanilla Orchid, and there are many more on the list.

What’s more amazing is each of them has symbolism. An example is Dendrobium orchids that symbolize “wisdom & beauty”.

But in general, orchids “represent love, fertility, thoughtfulness, and charm”. You are lucky if you’ve already seen even one of them.

But there’s this one kind of orchid that is really bizarre and hilarious at the same time.

It’s because of its appearance especially when you look at every flower closely. When you zoom in on every photo of this flower, it’s like you’re looking at a naked man.

We’re not joking.

Just look at this one. It looks like two guys who were wearing nothing. LOL! This orchid is called Orchis Italica but they are really popular as “naked man orchid” or the “Italian orchid”.

Its colors tend to be bright pink, so they are undoubtedly beautiful. But rarely, there are also ones that are in white.

They are really attention-stealers because of their shape.

Where can we find such beauty? According to First Nature, they are commonly found in the Mediterranean in large clusters. In places such as the Middle East, Greece, Spain, Portugal, and many more.

If you’re interested in them, you should keep in mind that they usually grow in scrubby places like abandoned farmland. You can look forward to seeing them bloom during April and May.

Orchis Italica’s popularity

On Instagram, you will see hundreds of photos of them. And many people actually love them not only because they are beautiful but because of their unique and remarkable look.

“I love these! Maybe I could squeeze one more orchid on my office ledge,” one commenter said.

Another Instagram user expressed how funny these orchids are by saying, “My sister-in-law loves orchids but these would be her favorite! How funny.”

Another person said:

“Oh my gosh! That is amazing!!! Beautiful!”

It’s just amazing how flowers can affect us. They can brighten up our day with their appearances. Although Orchis Italica is unique, it’s still loved by many people.

Flowers are part of nature and we’re blessed that we’re living in this world with their presence. Hopefully, all of us would be willing to do our part as humans.

And that’s by taking care of them with our whole heart.
