Join us for our Orchids in Bloom festival, a two-day celebration of the world’s most coveted plant! For two decades, Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden has been at the forefront of celebrating orchids in the lush landscapes of South Florida. This festival is not merely an event; it is a testament to our dedication to fostering a deeper connection with the natural world, inviting you to explore, learn, and revel in the splendor of orchids like never before.
Orchidaceae: Nature’s Masterpiece
Dive deep into the captivating world of Orchidaceae, one of the largest flowering plant families, boasting over 28,000 species. Orchids, with their incredible adaptability, thrive in diverse habitats, ranging from low-lying tropical climates to montane cloud forests.
Fairchild’s Orchid Collection and The National Orchid Garden
Fairchild takes great pride in being the home of the National Orchid Garden, the American Orchid Society, and the AOS Library Collection, making our orchid collection one of the largest globally.
Our orchid collection, renowned globally, is not just extensive but also boasts some of the rarest species on the planet. As a testament to our commitment to biodiversity, Fairchild is actively involved in the Million Orchid Project. This groundbreaking urban conservation initiative seeks to reintroduce one million orchids to South Florida.
Our Orchids in Bloom festival celebrates this staggerinly beautiful and popular plant while sharing its important role in our ecology and throughout Miami.
Be sure to look for orchids throughout the Garden, especially the vining vanilla orchid, from where vanilla beans are harvested!
