An Edosian orchid was an herbaceous plant which produced beautiful flowers.

While he served as a gardener at the Cardassian embassy on Romulus, Elim Garak specialized in Edosian orchids. He later mentioned to Odo that the orchids also happened to be extremely poisonous. (DS9: "Broken Link")

The name of the plant is believed to be a homage to the race of the animated character Arex who was a Edosian according to studio materials.
According to the script, the pronunciation for Edosian was "eh-DOZE-ee-an". [1]
