Orchids have long fascinated us.
Mention of them can be found in literature from around the world, Greek and Roman myths, and even Shakespeare. They can also be found in medicine and folk culture as well as magic. How did this occur? What makes them different from other flowers in the world?
Carol Gravens has a real passion for orchids. She is a Master Gardener and Master Naturalist with the
Missouri Botanical Garden and will guide us through
the world of these fascinating and beautiful plants.
NOTE: The annual Orchid Show will be running at the Garden from February 2 through March 31, 2013.
