The orchid family, or Orchidaceae, is one of the largest families of flowering plants on earth and this month we open a special exhibition dedicated to these beautiful epiphytes.

As the only botanical garden specializing in the study of epiphytes, Selby Gardens is home to one of the finest scientifically documented collections of orchids in the world. The Orchid Show: Earth, Air, Fire, Water combines a spectacular display of living plants in the Tropical Conservatory with a stunning exhibition of treasures from the bibliographic and preserved collections in the Museum of Botany & the Arts.

Come explore the science and splendor of orchids seen through the lense of the four elements of nature: earth, air, fire, and water.
