The Regenstein Center Greenhouses and Galleries are transformed by trees draped in orange and yellow Dendrobium, a hanging hedge of pink and purple Beallara, and vibrant Vanda in orange, red, yellow, and even blue. See more than 10,000 orchids in all. Note to selfie: bring a camera.
About the Show
Take a deep breath...and take a break.
Cold outside? It’s warm inside at the Orchid Show Greenhouses and Galleries. Add live music (on Tuesday and Thursday mornings), an orchid marketplace, and weekend orchid repotting services—it’s a great place to unplug and relax.
