Welcome to Carmela Orchids
May 8th Update: We are about 2-3 weeks behind on order shipments (processing orders received week of April 27th) due to the busy Mother’s Day Holiday. We apologize but we have not been able to read any emails received since April 30th. We hope to be caught up with orders by the week of May 25th. Thank you for your patience!

Mother’s Day 2020:
We are very sorry for our communication error regarding order shipments. Our shipping department has been shut down as of Monday 12 pm HST due to local Mother’s Day basket deliveries. We intended to say that all orders must be placed by phone (& not online orders) before Monday 5/4 12 pm HST for mainland shipping this week.
We are currently processing orders received the last week of April.
We thank you for your patience!
May Day is Lei Day here in Hawaii! Although we cannot celebrate this year’s May Day in full swing we’re excited that we’ll be able to offer beautiful orchids for Mother’s Day, May 10th! Locally in Hilo we are offering free delivery of single orchid plants as well as multi-plant baskets in lieu of our annual basket sale at the mall. Call the nursery at 808-963-6189 to place your order today! Shipping of Mother’s Day arrangements to the rest of the state of Hawaii as well as to the US Mainland are on a first come, first served basis and will incur additional shipping charges. Orders must be placed by Monday May 4th 12 pm HST to ensure deliver to the US Mainland by Mother’s Day.
Due to the Mother’s Day rush and our limited staff due to continued quarantine measures here in Hawaii all new orders will be delayed in shipping until AFTER Mother’s Day. We typically are able to ship orders out within a week but the current situation has orders going out ~2 weeks after receipt. We thank you for your patience & understanding as we continue to work through social distancing & state requirements.
