Face coverings are REQUIRED to enter the Garden’s indoor spaces, including the Fuqua Conservatory and Orchid Center, where much of the experience is one-way. Please maintain at least six feet of distance from others outside of your party.

About the Exhibition
Orchid Daze, the Garden’s annual indoor plant exhibition, returns for summer 2020 after the Garden’s brief closure in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. The exhibition runs through Sunday, August 2.
Explore thousands of tropical orchid blooms in three sections of the Fuqua Conservatory and Orchid Center, creatively inspired by famed Mexican architect Luis Barragán.
When he received the prestigious Pritzker Architecture Prize in 1980, Barragán stated, “You have to make homes become gardens and the gardens, home. Intimacy and home should be there, in the enclosed garden.” Barragán’s enclosed gardens combine the clean lines of the Modernist movement with the vivid colors of rural Mexico. His gardens juxtapose light with shadow and hard edges with fluid water features – all elements of this year’s unforgettable display.
About the Collection
The Atlanta Botanical Garden is home to one of the largest orchid collections at any public garden in the world.
All year, countless orchids are displayed in two specific climate zones inside the Fuqua Orchid Center: the Tropical High Elevation House and the Orchid Display House. Some are brought from on-site greenhouses for display while in bloom. Others are permanently installed to illustrate a more naturalistic growth on trees and structures.
