MoBOT’s Orchid Show is a tropical getaway just south of St. Louis

ST. LOUIS – Want to brighten up those dreary winter days? the The Missouri Botanical Garden’s annual Orchid Show is back after a COVID-19 and construction hiatus. You’ll find it in the brand new Jack C. Taylor Visitor Center’s Emerson Conservatory.

The garden’s permanent orchid collection lives in greenhouses most of the year. So, once a year, the orchid show is an opportunity to see hundreds of beautiful flowers

“The Missouri Botanical Garden actually has one of the largest and oldest orchid collections in the country, with thousands of different orchids. It actually dates from 1898 and is the oldest in our collection,” said Catherine Martin, the garden’s public relations officer. “When they bloom, we rotate them out. Every time you come they are a little bit different. There is something different to see.”

You’ll see all shapes, sizes and colors of orchids, from the large and unique Darwin star orchid to the tiniest little flowers you might walk right by. The Orchid Show runs through February 26 and is included with garden admission.
