The Orchid House
Bearing a magnificent variety of blooms, the orchid family is probably the largest in the world with over 25,000 species and as many hybrids. From the several thousand orchids growing in our greenhouses, only those plants - approximately 75 -- which are in their peak blooming period are displayed. Seventeen common genera of orchids are represented, including the popular corsage orchid, the cattleya. Above the Orchid collection ranges the huge Monstera Deliciosa, Swiss Cheese Plant, which bears edible fruit.
My Duck Soup also has a large array of individual orchid photographs in the Orchid Conservatory and most of the photographs were shot at Krohn.
