Saturday, Feb.13 – Sunday, April 11: Enjoy thousands of beautiful, fragrant orchids on display during Orchid Daze, the Fuqua Orchid Center’s annual exhibition highlighting winter’s favorite plant.
Hours & Safety Protocols
The Fuqua Conservatory and Orchid center is open daily, 12 – 7 p.m., Tuesday – Friday and 9 a.m. – 7 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. The limited weekday hours give the Garden’s staff time to maintain the displays without interfering with the guest experience.
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. Learn more about current safety protocols.
Orchid Daze is included in Garden Admission, which requires a timed ticket. Beginning Feb. 13, members must make complimentary reservations to ensure safe capacity.
About the Exhibition
Orchid Daze, the Garden’s annual indoor plant exhibition, explores the creative interplay between vibrant flowers and richly colored textiles.
Feb. 13 – April 11, three main displays in the Fuqua Conservatory and Orchid Center will introduce original creations for showcasing orchids: festoons, aerialists and chandeliers. In counterpoint to these vertical orchid elements are diverse textiles adding motion, texture and color to each set display.
Upon entering the Conservatory Lobby, visitors’ first impression is a spectacular festoon of orchids and tropical plants, an inverted cone cascading exuberantly from the top of the windows to the floor, framed on either side with dramatically undulating fabric.
This year’s display also features a gallery of orchid photography by Dr. Brad Wilson.
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.
