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.
