Orchids Galore at Matthaei Botanical Gardens
The nonprofit Ann Arbor Orchid Society Orchid Show will take place from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., November 18 and 19, 2023, at Matthaei Botanical Gardens. Photography hour is from 9 to 10 a.m., November 19. Visitors may enjoy award-winning orchid displays, free orchid classes, orchid vendors, orchid care supplies and orchid raffles.
Orchids have long been considered symbols of purity, prosperity and good health, but were also once thought to bring happiness and good luck to those that grew them. Unlike other flowers, orchid blooms are monosymmetrical because both halves of the flower mirror each other. Becoming an Ann Arbor Orchid Society member means learning about the wonderful world of orchids, and visitors are welcome.
