February 1 - April 12: Warm your winter and bring on spring in the beauty and fragrance of Orchid Daze.
About the Exhibition
Orchid Daze, the Garden’s annual indoor plant exhibition, celebrates the vibrant presence of orchids in the contemporary gardens of Latin America Feb. 1 – April 12.
Across Latin America are many spectacular artists’ gardens. Orchid Daze draws its inspiration from the works of Luis Barragán, one of Mexico’s greatest and most original artists. Educated as an engineer, he became one of the most influential modernist architects of the 20th century.
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.
