Bellingrath Gardens and Home will host the Mobile Area Orchid Society’s 40th Annual Orchid Show and Sale from Friday, February 17, through Sunday, February 19.
Mobile Area Orchid Society members will display their best orchids and will be available to answer questions and provide tips on growing and caring for orchids. Vendors will be selling orchids, supplies and accessories. Guests may also shop for new spring merchandise in the Bellingrath Gift Shop.
Admission into the Orchid Show is free of charge. During the month of February, guests may save on Gardens-and-Home combination tickets with the Snowbird Special. The Magnolia Café will serve lunch from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., making it easy for guests to visit the Gardens and Home either before or after viewing the orchids on display.
