This is the language of orchids – Not only the language but also the flowers are strange and exotic.  Orchid flowers are so weird they are bewitchingly beautiful.  You don’t need to learn the names to be enraptured by them.

Saturday February 13 & Sunday February 14, 2016 the Southern Ontario Orchid Society presents its 36th ANNUAL ORCHID SHOW at the Toronto Botanical Garden in Toronto, Ont. from 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM.

Want to IMPRESS your Valentine? This is your big chance.  Bring your Valentine to the orchid show.  Then, as she/he is standing in front of a stunning orchid display whisper the name of one or two. Your mysterious words coupled with the exotic often erotic flowers will create a lasting impression.

At the Orchid Show, you can learn the orchid names, be INTOXICATED by the scents, REVEL in the myriad of colours, and LEARN how easy they are to grow. Then you can visit the many venders to SHOP for that special specimen to take home.

Over 30 exhibitors will bring their most beautiful orchids to compete in over 100 classes for ribbons, trophies and awards.  Come to see which ones are the most beautiful.

There are SPECIAL HOURS, on Saturday, 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, 9 to 11 a.m., for photographers when numbers are strictly limited and tripods are permitted.

The Southern Ontario Orchid Society is a non-profit organization.  For 50 years, members have been sharing their knowledge about growing, breeding, preserving and conserving the vast family of orchids.  By sharing the knowledge, novices are nurtured to become experts.

Proceeds from the show support conservation of orchid habitat in Canada and the tropics.
