Just next month from October 19-23, orchid hobbyists, enthusiasts, and those who enjoy the beauty of orchids will come together for the 2nd annual International Orchid Show held at The Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens in Los Angeles, California! This year’s show, Elegant Orchids, will also coincide with the American Orchid Society’s Fall Members’ Meeting.
The Huntington Botanical Gardens sits on 120 acres of land and features 16 gardens with 15,000 plant varieties. The gardens was founded in 1903 by Henry Huntington who originally purchased the property formerly used as a ranch and converted it into a beautiful estate. Today, 40 gardeners, a curatorial staff of seven, and more than 100 volunteers maintain the botanical collections, provide educational programs for visitors, and propagate plants that are often included in special sales.
We are honored to sponsor this exceptional event enjoyed by orchid lovers from around the world! We will be on site attending meetings and networking with others in attendance. We will also host a lecture on October 21, October 22, and October 23 from 1:30pm – 2:30pm focusing on “why award winning growers choose Orchiata.” This special presentation will be led by Graham Wood of Lehua Orchids and Garry Clark of Besgrow.
In conjunction with the members’ meeting, The Huntington Botanical Garden will host it’s Orchid Show from 10am-5pm on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday which is open to the general public. We encourage everyone in the area to stop by and enjoy the beauty of the show. We hope you will leave as inspired as us!
