― Fabulous Fragrant Orchids ―

Only one experience is more breathtaking than seeing a gorgeous orchid in bloom and that is smelling a fragrant gorgeous orchid in bloom! Ask the insect pollinators who depend on fragrance rather than beauty to lead them to the right flower. Yet, orchid growers have traditionally paid more attention to flower size, substance, color, and shape than to scent!

His presentation shows exquisite images many of them and description including cultivation information along with detailed notes on the plant’s fragrance and intensity, which can range from elegant and sophisticated to downright nasty, from fruity and spicy to medicinal and fishy, from light and fresh to heavy and overwhelming.

This program is both informative and entertaining for experienced or beginning orchidists.

This territory is covered by the Dish With One Spoon Wampum Belt Covenant, an agreement between the Haudenosaunee and the Ojibwe to care for and share the lands and resources around the Great Lakes.

This territory is still the home of many Indigenous people from nations across Turtle Island, and we are grateful for the opportunity to meet here today.
