Tropical Flowers look real great and Orchids even top them.This plants come in almost all colors, including white but not black. One of the most popular is a blue orchid, in the past and prior to the hybridization they were extremely rare but now designed in the laboratory plenty of shades are available which nature rarely has shown.
The Greek word "orchis" which gave them the name means testicle. Today about 26,000 species and hybrids are out there and this count is growing continuously because the laboratories try to develop new form and behaviors. E.g. to have a longer blooming time, make them resistant to certain fungi and creating new colors in the nursery.
