Orchid award
Silver Gilt Award for orchid species

The Orchid Conservation Educational Exhibit raises global awareness for the conservation and protection of natural orchid habitats. Inspired by last year’s “Finding the Rare Florida Ghost Orchid” at the 2023 Chelsea Flower Show, an orchid conservation team of experts was assembled from across the U.S., including Benjamin J. Crain, Ph.D., of Humboldt Botanical Garden and the Smithsonian’s North American Orchid Conservation Center (NAOCC). In showcasing a variety of native orchids, the team brings together specialists, horticulturists and the public in celebration and encouraging efforts to protect these precious plants and their habitats.
