Explore the botanical richness and stunning biodiversity of several distinct environments housed in the Dorothy Chapman Fuqua Conservatory, where a tropical rainforest meets the South African Desert and visitors can learn how humans relate to the plant world in many complex ways.
The Fuqua Orchid Center hosts the largest collection of species orchids on permanent display in the United States. These gardens under glass represent two climate environments, offering more than 200 genera and 2,000 species of orchids, the largest and most diverse plant family in the world.
The Gongora and Stanhopea orchid collections are nationally accredited by the Plant Collection Network, a program of the American Public Gardens Association.
Be sure to meet the fascinating, colorful and sometimes dangerous frogs of the Garden’s amphibian conservation program, which include rare and endangered species from Central and South America.
The Garden is home to one of the largest orchid collections at any public garden in the world. Learn more about these diverse beauties in the Fuqua Orchid Center.
