Orchid Show

February 2 to March 25
Open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily

Immerse yourself in a tropical oasis brimming with vibrant blooming orchids at the Orchid Show, a once-a-year opportunity to view a rotating display of hundreds of orchids from the Garden's expansive living collection. 

Peer through lush foliage, bubbling fountains, and trailing vines as you are transported to an exotic hideaway within the Orthwein Floral Display Hall, and explore the "orchid mania" of the Victorian era, a time when passionate plant enthusiasts sought to collect and cultivate newly discovered orchid species, no matter what the trial, tribulation or cost.
