Orchid Extravaganza Season

Orchid Extravaganza

January 19–March 24, 2019

Experience A Force of Nature

Show-stopping color, breathtaking displays, and inspiring artistry await during Orchid Extravaganza. Come in from the cold and delight in the sights and scents inside our 4-acre Conservatory. From a towering 12-foot-tall archway made of Phalaenopsis orchids to giant orbs hanging from above, our iconic orchid curtain, and more than 200 Vanda hanging in our Silver Garden, beauty awaits at every turn.

Our gardeners, designers, carpenters, and metal workers craft original displays each year to present orchids in unique ways. This year we introduce a new form: orchid-wrapped columns rising in stately elegance in Exhibition Hall.

In March, blue flowers steal the show during our Winter Blues Festival. From blue-poppies to hydrangeas, it's a sight to behold.
