I sent these orchids to my mother, and they were a hit. She loved them and went on and on about how fresh they were and how long they lasted. This is indeed important, because I have sent flowers to her from other vendors that charged twice as much and were wilted within days of my mother receiving them. These flowers were delivered from Hawaii in less than 24 hours of my order (The recipient does live on the West Coast, but that is still FAST!). Overall, I can highly recommend the flowers and the overall ordering experience.

I have ordered these several times as gifts and the feedback from receivers has always been positive. The flowers arrive very quickly, fresh, and maintain their beauty for weeks.

The flowers were very poorly packed and got damaged in the shipping process. The box looked ok but 1/4 of the flower came off the stem when I took it out of the box and 1/2 of the flowers left on the stems were damaged (bruise, crumpled, etc...). Other than that the flowers smelled nice and were fresh.

I live in Florida and my friend, in Connecticut, was celebrating her 60th birthday. She said the flowers were beautiful, fresh and made celebrating her birthday extra special. I was hesitant on ordering flowers from overstock, but not now. The flowers came on time and in time, the price was excellent, and the quality was very high. I would not hesitate to order flowers again from overstock.

I sent these flowers to my mother for mother's day - she called and couldn't stop going on about how beautiful they were. They arrived quickly and were very fresh and gorgeous. Great deal!

This flower I have ordered them as gift couple of times. I have also order different flower from overstock before. All of my friends and family who received flower from us are all love it. And say they are beautiful and fresh and last a long time...... Only one thing.......I did indicate this is a gift when I order it. I also write a gift message. But there is no card. And there is not where on any thing on the package that has my gift message. So they don't know it's from me. I have to call them and tell the people who I send flower to , that is from me. This happen every single time I send flower from overstock.com. But price is so good in this website. I will still use it again. Just hope Overstock.com will improve...and have a gift card or a piece of paper that print my gift message I typed.

I have been so happy with my fresh flowers and the extent to which it enhanced my dining room that after they died which was about 3 weeks, I went out and tried to duplicate the look with silk. Of course the original was more attractive and it did cost less.

I sent these to a friend. She was delighted. The flowers were apparently fresh. I saw them in a photo she sent me and they resembled the ones on the website. Definitely made an impression that they were pricey. I was anxious about the timing but even with the restricted times, it made it to my friend in time for her birthday, so all in all, I am satisfied.

After ordering flowers locally, only to see a sorry looking bouquet that the florist didn't think I'd see...and after ordering flowers online, to have some zip-checking program determine a different address so my recipient never received them, I've FINALLY found a sure thing! These orchids are exotic, fresh and amazing. For under $50, I can have a gorgeous package delivered and be sure that my recipeint got something beautiful and amazing. I no longer have to look for coupons or decide. I just send these and those who I send them to are in for a spectacular surprise to brighten their day. Look no further and order these and rest assured that fresh, gorgeous flowers will arrive when they say they will. Plan ahead since these will not ship on weekends. Absolutely lovely!

Very dissappointed and I won't order these again. I ordered them for a friend and saw them two days after the delivery. The flowers were tired and wilted (not due to lack of water). The blooms were brown around the edges and the leaves were yellow. Not fresh. Embarrassing when you send someone a gift that turns out to be poor quality.

The flowers arrived well boxed and directly from Hawaii. The pictures don't do them justice! Full of bud-and-bloom, they stayed fresh for weeks. You'll need a large vase for the 12-stem, or split and make two well-filled arrangements - You WON'T be disappointed!

These orchids arrived in perfect condition and seemed very fresh. They were beautiful and included a variety of colors in the 12 stems. They lasted longer than most cut flowers, about 12 days, but not as long as other cut orchids I have had, which usually lasted 2-4 weeks but were more expensive. Overall I felt they were a very good buy and have recommended them to friends who admired them and were surprised when I told them I got them at Overstock.

WoW! I logged on, intending to order these for a friend. I forgot to put her address and hit the ORDER NOW button, accidentally sending them to myself! Normally, I don't order flowers online, especially for myself, but I'm grateful to see the quality. These are top-quality, fully loaded stems of beautiful dendrobium orchids just like in the photo. Each stem, is about 2/3 fully opened, so I'll have fresh orchids opening for several weeks. They look as fresh as if they'd been picked and rushed from the Hilo Hawaiian growers right to the FedEx airplane! We live in Northern California, so they didn't have multiple shipments through the midwest and northeast, etc. In the past, another on-line floral shipper always used UPS United Parcel Service, and those flowers would sit for a week or more in UPS' Oakland facilities and arrive wilted, etc. So I was very very pleased to see this grower use FedEx. What more can I say? A great value, stunning display (recipient will need to provide a fairly short 12-15" wide mouth vase or pitcher would work great.) Oh! Another plus -- when I would send mixed bouquets and roses to elder family members (using that other online flower "Pro", there was always a lot of difficult unwrapping and trimming of each stem, which was really difficult for my M-I-L's arthritic hands so she would just leave them in the box. These orchids are freshly trimmed, wrapped with a single rubber band securely banding the whole bunch, and packed in slightly damp shredded newspaper. So, they were EASY TO UNWRAP and stick in a vase. I really appreciated that.
