Orchids at the NWFGS - 2018

 Northwest Orchid Society's display gardens at the Northwest Flower and Garden Show are always a treat! Last year, their garden got a silver medal, this year it is gold!

From the NWFGS brochure:

 "This is a visual journey to a vanilla farm in Central America. It’s a stunning display of over 200 flowering orchids, most notably Vanilla planifolia—the plant the spice is derived from.  At a greenhouse display, you’ll learn about growing the vanilla plants and how the seeds are cured. It’s also a terrific opportunity to learn about growing and caring for orchids from members of the Northwest Orchid Society.  This display features specimens provided by members of the Northwest Orchid Society and from prestigious collections throughout the Pacific Northwest.

I love Venus Slipper Orchids. It was in the Russian Far East when I saw them for the very first time, growing in the forest.

I don't grow orchids, but I always enjoy their spectacular blooms! Thank you, 'Vanilla Farm' creators!

  1. Like you, I don't grow orchids but am always impressed with the Northwest Orchid Society's gardens at the show. Orchids are such photogenic flowers and you've done a great job of capturing their charms.

  2. Always one of my favorite gardens at the show! I've killed orchids in the past, but I love looking at them.

  3. I have several orchids. The ones that are easy to grow and take care of. I would like to try one of the fancier orchids but I am a little nervous about doing so. I love this display.

  4. That was a lovely display garden. Orchids are so photogenic.

  5. So nicely decorated that I do not know what to choose. I like the idea from the third photo. Regards.


Thank you for stopping by and for your comment! I appreciate your time! See you soon on your blog!
