Orchid Show

Spring Colors in the Winter Chill

During the winter season, orchids are featured in lush floral displays and living arrangements, and unique species and cultivars will fill the historic House. New in 2020, guests will be welcomed by an archway of orchids in the entry Foyer- nearly 50 blooms will create the perfect photo opportunity to celebrate orchids at Filoli!

In addition to the plants from Filoli’s collection, the show features orchids from local organizations including the San Francisco Orchid SocietySanta Clara Valley Orchid SocietyGold Coast Cymbidium Growers, and Pacific Central Branch of the American Orchid Society.  Filoli is indebted to these orchid societies for generously exhibiting their plants during our Orchid Show.
