Herein,the research progress of flower pigment types,anthocyanin and carotenoid biosynthesis pathways related genes in orchids were reviewed,and future research directions were prospected. We aimed to provide important references to shed light on the molecular mechanism of flower colors formation and the breeding of colorful flower varieties of orchids.

Key words: Orchidaceae, flower color, anthocyanin, carotenoid
