The 2017 Annual Orchid Show & Sale was held February 25th and 26th at Naples Botanical Gardens, 4820 Bayshore Drive, Naples, FL.  Show hours were Saturday and Sunday from 9am-5 pm both days. The theme for the 2017 show was Orchids In The Garden.  

Admission to the show came from our membership(s) in the Naples Orchid Society, the Naples Botanical Garden, or the normal entrance fees taken by the garden.

The show featured prize-winning orchids of many species and hybrids. Card-table size and large floor-size artistic displays of blooming orchid plants, containers full of potted orchids and cut orchid flower arrangements competed for ribbons and awards.
