  • I truly believe this is a beautiful place - if the orchids are blooming. There were very few flowers blooming when we were there, but it was still a nice place to walk around for 20 minutes or so.  more »
  • Knowledgeable staff can answer all your orchid questions. There are prolongation rooms and lots of orchids on the trees and in display areas.  more »

  • We went on the off season... Most of the orchids are only in bloom from August through the fall, but it was still worth it. The plants were beautiful, and at the end of the tour they put out feed that attracted the most incredible and colorful local birds. If you're in the area, it's worth the few dollars, any time of year!
  • Interesting place with a very kind owner that knows everything about her beautiful plants
