Made in the U.S.A. 25.75"h. x 19.375"w. x 1.25"d.
Star orchids are among the 8,000 specimens in our Smithsonian Orchid Collection, which includes species from Africa, Asia, and Australia, as well as from the Americas. Cultivated in our Smithsonian Gardens Greenhouse Facility, the orchid collection is used to beautify museum interiors and for special exhibitions. Our 18th Annual Orchid Exhibition—this year entitled Orchids of Latin America—runs through April 21, 2013.
