Flower of Winchester:
The Burnt Orchid (Neotinea ustulata), a beautiful flower that’s native to the adjacent South Downs National Park, is surely Winchester’s floral symbol.
Considered an endangered species throughout Europe, the Burnt Orchid takes its name from the distinctive blacks “burn” marks that dot the flower’s delicate white petals.
With a honey-like fragrance, Burnt Orchids have been charming visitors to southern England for many years, and it’s true that the region has the highest number of Burnt Orchids anywhere in northwest Europe.
Florists in Winchester take inspiration from the nearby countryside and in particular from the unique beauty of the Burnt Orchid. With Floom, flower delivery in Winchester is locally-inspired and never, ever generic.
