Hunt for Orchids at the Huntington

In San Marino, California, the Huntington Library, Art Museum, and Botanical Gardens house over 10,000 orchids. It’s one of the largest and most diverse collections in the world, and just one reason why it’s worth visiting the Huntington. However, if you can’t visit in person, you can take a virtual tour of the Huntington’s orchids. There are lots of Paphs, Phrags, Cymbidiums, Cattleyas, Stanhopeas, and much more. Their website features gorgeous photos, interactive maps, and lots of orchid information. New pictures are added monthly. Scientists use the collection for conservation and research. The Huntington also keeps an array of historic hybrids which have become a big part of modern horticulture.
