The Garden has nearly 2,000 orchids on display, and the LaGrippe Orchid Garden serves as the collection’s showpiece. This garden showcases the many types of orchids, ranging from dainty, leafless plants and inconspicuous, green flowers to those with giant, showy blossoms that perfume the air. Featured alongside orchids are bromeliads and other epiphytes growing in the canopies of the trees. The rough bark of the silver trumpet tree (Tabebuia aurea) provides a natural armature for these airplants, while offeringdappled shade and bursts of bright yellow each spring.. Water cascades through a fountain made from native Florida coral limestone, adding to the sense of tranquility. Ever-changing rotational displays means there’s alwayssomething new blooming in the Orchid Garden.
