The 2019 Annual Orchid Show & Sale will be held on February 23th and 24th at the Naples Botanical Gardens, 4820 Bayshore Drive, Naples, FL.  Show hours will be on Saturday and Sunday from 9am-5 pm both days. The theme for the 2019 show is ‘The Magic of Orchids’.

Admission to the show will be from our membership(s) in the Naples Orchid Society, the Naples Botanical Garden, or the normal entrance fees taken by the garden.

The show will feature prize-winning orchids of many species and hybrids. Card-table size and large floor-size artistic displays of blooming orchid plants, containers full of potted orchids and cut orchid flower arrangements will compete for ribbons and awards. (Click here for 2018 Ribbon winners and 2018 Show Awards).

American Orchid Society judges will award outstanding single plants for best in show in a variety of classes.  Information about the exhibits and plant competitions are contained in the rules and regulations for the show entries.

Only hobby grower members will be eligible for the Naples Orchid Society awards, but anyone can enter an individual orchid to be judged for AOS awards. If awarded, the owner of the plant will have to pay for any AOS award, but can opt out of accepting AOS awards when registering the entry. (Click here for 2018 AOS Award winners)

The vendors for the 2019 show will be Florida SunCoast Orchids, Krull-Smith Orchids, Mac’s Orchids, Odoms Orchids, OFE International—Orchid Supplies, and Bactra Orchid Benches.
