Illinois Orchid Society Spring Show & Sale
Phalaenopsis! Dendrobium! Paphiopedilum! Cymbidium! Phragmipedium! Maxillaria! Cypripedium! Selenipedium! If you know what I’m exclaiming about, Road Trips Gardeners, then you probably already know that the Illinois Orchid Society Spring Show and Sale will be held March 26 and 27, 2011, in the Chicago Botanic Garden, 1000 Lake Cook Road, Glencoe, Illinois.
The Illinois Orchid Society presents this show, in which individual orchids in 128 classes will vie for red, white and blue ribbons. Displays of orchids, from the rarest of species to cultivated hybrids, will be on view. In addition, the society will provide repotting services for $5 and an orchid sales area.
Hours are from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. March 26 and from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. March 27. Lectures will be scheduled both days in the Alsdorf Auditorium.
