Come join the Illinois Orchid Society at its spring show and sale. Individual orchids in 128 classes will vie for ribbons.
A wide array of cultivars and related products are available for orchidophiles.
Entries will receive "best of class" green ribbons, and the best-appointed plant in the show will receive the Chicago Horticultural Society Award from the American Orchid Society judges. Fourteen displays of orchids will be artistically arranged, and repotting services will be available.
Families can take part in orchid-based activities for children. Vendors will also be on-site to sell orchid plants and related products—cut flowers, cultural books, hobby bags of our special Illinois Orchid Society (IOS) potting mix, raffle tickets, and best of all, IOS memberships.
Purchase an orchid or hybrid to take home with you. (Shown: Laeliocattleya Drumbeat 'Triumph')
Visit the Garden's Greenhouses after the show to find more exotic specimens, like Ascofinetia 'Cherry Blossom'.
