Lovely orchids for miles! A literal feast for the eyes. You can buy plants or cut orchids or just revel in the beauty. Always a fun place to visit and even more so during the annual Orchid Show time.

The most amazing collection and variety of orchids available to the public. It was fun just walking through it and photographing the flowers. We bought a very special orchid and had it shipped home. If you like orchids, don't miss this place!

Based on previous reviews I thought this would be something like a botanical garden. But when we arrived the owner seemed frustrated with us because we were just there to look and not buy. Most areas had signs that said "no admittance". We left after...More

I had met Wayne, one of the owners, and his father at an orchid show in Pasadena over a year ago. He recognized me (for real - he remembered what I do for a living) and was very helpful on this visit. Although they supply...More
