Orchidaceae is the largest and most diverse family of flowering plants, and many bloom all throughout the year here. As you explore the area, you may discover that not all our plantings are in the ground. Many orchids peer out between tree branches and foliage, so don’t forget to look up too!

The orchids in our collection consist mainly of those which will survive outdoors in our particular microclimate. Genera include Vanilla, Phalaenopsis, Oncidium, Schomburgkia, and Vanda. The garden often has orchids for sale if you would like to try your hand at growing your own.
