orchids at NC ArboretumMarch 29-30, 2014
Visitors to the N.C. Arboretum will step into a lush, tropical world at the Western North Carolina Orchid Society’s Annual Show from 10 AM until 5 PM each day.

Read about more Spring Flower Shows at the Arboretum!

Thousands of orchids fill the Education Center of the Arboretum in this show, which is one of the largest in the southeast. This year’s theme, “The Lost World of Orchids,” will be an adventure of the imagination. World-class orchid growers from around the country and regional orchid societies will fill the exhibition hall with dazzling color, exotic scents, and hints of an ancient world in carefully crafted displays.

Vendors will offer orchid supplies and plants for purchase, including the rare and hard-to-find. WNC Orchid Society members will be available to answer questions and provide orchid-growing advice. Visitors will also have the opportunity to attend a number of educational programs given by professional orchid growers and hybridizers. Cynthia Gillooly of B.B. Barns, The Garden Company, will offer growing tips and repotting techniques. Hadley Cash of Marriott Orchids will discuss the latest in new available hybrids, and guests will have the opportunity to tour stunning orchid exhibits with Tom Nasser of Carolina Orchids, who will share his in-depth knowledge of the orchids on display.

Shows and events are free for Arboretum Society members or with the standard parking fee ($12 per personal motor vehicle). Visitors are also encouraged to explore the Arboretum’s kaleidoscope of spring color, 65 acres of cultivated gardens, ten miles of hiking and biking trails, and engaging exhibits.
