Sapphire Coast Orchid Club Summer Orchid Show
Event dates to be confirmed: November 2024
The South Coast Orchid Club presents an orchid show principally for Australian Native Sarcanthinae Orchids - although other orchids in flower at the time will also be on show.
Sarcanthinae are principally Australian native orchids from the rainforests and rocky ravines. This show is dedicated to these dainty orchids which are rarely seen at the Club's regular orchid shows. Their flowers may be small but are carried in profusion, and displayed en masse, with their ever-increasing colour range, they make quite a show.
Complimented by a variety of exotic orchids and other native species the show has a particularly good showing of Masdevallias and some eye-catching pendulous Cymbidiums along with Softcane Dendrobiums, all in all the Show is building to a very impressive spectacle.
Sales of orchids will be available, but be early. For more details please go to the website.
