Paramount Orchids was started in 1995. We've been growing orchids commercially for 25 years, and currently have approximately 35,000 orchid plants growing in our British Columbia greenhouses, most of which are intermediate to warm growing.

We carry a very good selection of oncidium intergenerics (oncidiums, miltonias, brassias, odontoglossums, odontonias, odontocidiums, oncostele, burragearas, vuylstekearas, brassidiums, miltonidiums, wilsonaras, miltassias, etc), as well as many different paphiopedilums, cattleya types, some phalaenopsis, many different dendrobiums and masdevallias as well as a very wide variety of orchid species and unusual hybrids. 

The Calgary operation is now permanently closed and all plant inquiries will be dealt with from our Vancouver Island location. We are still in the process of updating our web page to reflect current stock and pricing though, for the most part, it is up do date.

NOTE:    Canadian mail order shipments currently are processed from April to October (weather permitting). Unless otherwise specified, we send the plants by Express Post with delivery generally occurring within three business days. Shipping is charged at actual cost.

NOTE:    Effective November 1, 2018 we stopped shipping  to the United States.
