November Meeting – Tuesday 11/8 @ 7 PM via Zoom
Virtual Tour of the Huntington Library, Art Museum & Botanical Gardens in San Marino, CA.
With over 10,000 orchid plants, The Huntington has one of the largest orchid collections in the US and one of the five most diverse collections in the world, with over 3,600 unique varieties representing 280 genera, including, but not limited to, Paphiopedilum, Phragmipedium, Cymbidium, Cattleya, Stanhopea, and Lycaste.
These orchids and other tropical plants are maintained in three off-view greenhouses and one public conservatory, totaling over 26,000 square feet. In addition, the extensive diversity of orchids within the collections enables staff to display blooming orchids year-round in the Rose Hills Foundation Conservatory for Botanical Science, where examples of rare plants are rotated weekly for the public to view, appreciate, and interpret.
