The Garden displays an estimated 2,000 orchids throughout its property. The LaGrippe Orchid Garden is the focal point, but orchids and other epiphytes — plants that don’t require soil — are affixed to trees throughout, adding pops of color and texture. Additionally, the Garden conserves Florida native orchids, many of which are threatened or endangered. The Sönne Family Ghost Orchid Boardwalk immerses guests in a wetland habitat where many native orchids — including the namesake ghost orchid (Dendrophylax lindenii) — thrive.
