Use your imagination to discover how the moth orchid, slipper orchid, and dancing lady orchid got their names. Enjoy fragrant orchids such as Cattleya with vivid floral notes, Maxillaria that smells like roasted coconut, or Oncidium ‘Sharry Baby’ reminiscent of vanilla and chocolate. Attend a free talk by experienced orchid growers and discover the best orchids for growing in the home.
