The Orchid Society of Greater St. Louis has their monthly meeting featuring guest speaker Theresa Hill of Hillsview Gardens.  She will be discussing Paphiopedilum orchids and have plants for sale.  The meeting will be held in the Missouri and Botanical Rooms at the Missouri Botanical Gardens.

Bill and Theresa Hill first opened Hillsview Gardens in 1985. At that time, they endeavored to grow orchids for the local hobbyist as well as mail order. Since that time, they have increased our production to include both wholesale and supplying the local flower market in Portland, Oregon. They have grown to 8,000 sq. ft. of greenhouse space. Changing with the times and keeping up with the demands of customers and clients, they continue to modify their products creating new and exciting orchids.

Hillsview Gardens supplies a wide variety of hybrids and species – from connoisseur-quality divisions and specimen plants for discriminating hobbyists, cutting-edge hybrids in wholesale quantities for retail nurseries, to outstanding decorator quality plants delivered directly to chain stores in Portland, Oregon.

Hillsview Gardens has been breeding orchids for 24 years, and since that time received over 100 AOS awards, including three FCC/AOS, a Gold Certificate, six Awards of Quality and a Bronze Award at the 16th World Orchid Conference in Vancouver, BC.

Hillsview Gardens is an orchid nursery dedicated to the creation of hybrid orchids. Their focus is on Masdevallias, Miltoniopsis and Paphiopedilums. They limit their specialization to a few genera in order to refine their product. As native habitats continue to decline, Hillsview Gardens realized early on their responsibility to make available rare and endangered species from seed grown outcrosses. Their objective is to bring these wonderful species and hybrids to orchid growers everywhere.
