San Diego Botanic Garden hosts its second annual spring orchid showcase, "World of Orchids," from Saturday, May 7 through Sunday, June 12. The Garden will stage the exhibition, which kicks off Mother’s Day weekend, in its state-of-the-art, 8,000 square foot, glass-enclosed facility – the Dickinson Family Education Conservatory.

On select days, the show will feature sales of plants, potting materials, reference guides, and other merchandise by vendors, conservation organizations, and local orchid societies.

On Sundays and Mondays from 9 - 10 a.m., Garden members can enter the "World of Orchids" exhibition for a private "Member Hour," during which other visitors are permitted to roam the rest of the Garden.

“This exhibition invites visitors to enjoy the vibrant colors, elegant shapes and intoxicating scents for which orchids are so well known, but it also surprises visitors with flowers of unexpected sizes, shapes, and scents,” said SDBG President and CEO, Ari Novy, PhD. “Orchids comprise one of the largest and most diverse families of flowering plants in the world. With hundreds of different species and hybrids on display, this show offers even seasoned collectors the opportunity to discover a strange and delightful new orchid.”

Open Wednesday – Monday from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.
Closed on Tuesday
