It is that time of year again! The Orchid Society of Greater St. Louis will be holding their 21st Annual Orchid Auction. The social event will be held at the Missouri Botanical Garden in the Beaumont Room, Sunday August 24, from noon till 5PM or until the orchids run out. The auction features various orchids not found in local stores to suit all experience levels and tastes, and an information booth to answer any growing questions you might have.
All orchids for the event are either supplied by members of the Orchid Society of Greater St. Louis or by various orchid nurseries across the nation including some local sellers such as Windy Hill Gardens. There will be specimen sized orchids from a few vendors and some donated by a member of the society for over 50 years. Overall, a large variety of orchids will be at the auction, including Vandaceous. Additionally, Charles Dana Photography, whose work was recently exhibited at the Missouri Botanical Garden, will be donating some of his work with orchids for auction.
