Atlanta Botanical Garden Orchid Daze 2021

My 20-year-old son, who is also a Master Gardener, has a special interest in orchids. He loves to find an orchid on the sale table at the nursery and restore it back to it’s original vigor. And when his rescued orchid blooms for the first time we all stand in awe of his handiwork.

So, when the Atlanta Botanical Garden announced they would have another Orchid Daze exhibit, he and I had to make a trip to see the Fuqua Conservatory and Orchid Center in all her splendor—and she didn’t disappoint. We took along my littles and our camera to capture some photos to share with y’all, but they all just don’t do the beauty justice.

The Atlanta Botanical Garden touts the largest collection of species orchids on permanent display in the United States. If you love orchids, Atlanta is where you want to go to see rare and amazing finds, offering more than 200 genera and 2,000 species of orchids — the largest and most diverse plant family in the world.

Which one is your favorite? I can’t pick just one!

This was an odd year as we wore masks into the greenhouse and on the grounds of the Atlanta Botanical Garden. But the rules and new guidelines didn’t stop us from enjoying the splendor.

Did you know? The Atlanta Botanical Garden is home to one of the largest orchid collections at any public garden in the world! 

This one looks like little angels…
Not an orchid, but these Pansies were pretty in the courtyard…
