Orchids in Vogue

This year, at our biggest flower show of the year, we’re taking a playful look at orchids how they have influenced and continue to inspire popular culture. Bring your camera and come see the striking Phalaenopsis ‘V3’ orchid—it’s rarely on display at botanic gardens. You also won’t want to miss the Garden’s own creations at the Orchid Show, including a 15-foot tall Vanda “wind chime.”

About the Show
Special Orchid Events

It’s the best. Eye candy. Ever.

Ready to buy an orchid for your home? The Garden Shop sells several varieties and mini-orchids, vendors sell at the Orchid Marketplace on weekends, and the post-show plant sale offers many of the plants displayed in the exhibition on sale at greatly reduced prices. Learn more about the beautiful blooms with one of our orchid classes, or ask the Illinois Orchid Society all of your orchid questions; society orchid experts will be on hand every weekend during the Orchid Show.

Orchid Dress

In a nod to the world of haute couture (Fendi and Dior are among the fashion houses that have embraced orchids), three teams of Garden designers and horticulturists have created “dresses” made of fresh orchids.
