ANNUAL ORCHID SHOW
IN BLOOM NOW

The annual orchid show is in full bloom
at Missouri Botanical Garden
with 800 rare orchids on display
in a lush, tropical landscape.

The orchid show is the only time of the year
when a vast, rotating selection of orchids
from the garden's historic collection
is available for public viewing.

In celebration of the garden's "Year of China" project,
this year's show is adorned with suspended silk lanterns
and infused with Chinese-themed accents.

The show runs through March 25
and is open daily from 9:00am - 5:00pm.

  3. Beautiful plants! I love orchids. They remind me of my mother. She had a n orchid collection. Do you know that vanilla and orchids belong to the same family? Also the word orchids literally came from the Greek word "orkis", meaning testicle because of the shape of their roots, just like the ones shown in one of your photos. That is why in medicine the removal of the testicles is called "orchidectomy". Interesting and beautiful stuff!!!
