Patio & Garden Orchids

What Makes Patio & Garden Orchids Different?

These are the most durable orchids ever developed for outdoor use.

Thriving in heat and high humidity, these orchids bloom all summer in the garden as a landscape feature, on the patio or terrace as a container specimen or mixed with other summer blooming plants in combination. An amazing addition to the container garden palette, these beauties will
transform the look of planters on America’s patios, decks and porches. These orchids are
easy to grow with excellent foliage quality and numerous long lasting scapes. Most
varieties reach an ultimate height of 18-24”. Bring Patio & Garden Orchids inside for the
cooler months and move back out after danger of frost. Gorgeous and a great value!

Think of Patio & Garden Orchids as the upscale “geranium” of the future!

This revolutionary group of Orchids are easy to grow in full sun or partial shade. They perform
best with regular watering and a regular regiment of liquid fertilizer. They must have well
drained soils. They like pine bark based soils which offer good drainage and acid properties.
Hardy to Zone 9, these free flowering varieties are happy
in the harshest of landscape conditions, thriving in hot areas. Great companions to Patio & Garden Orchids in mixed containers are Sweet Potato Vine, Coleus and Lantana. They also combine will with bold textured tropicals such as Bananas and Elephant Ears and graceful ornamental grasses.
You will be impressed by the summer performance of these plants. It is an incredible breakthrough to find varieties that will take direct sun in an outdoor environment.
Patio & Garden Orchids also make a great gift for the special gardener and give designers, architects and home gardeners a new palette of opportunities for using orchids in ways never
thought of before. Experience the exotic beauty of orchids outdoors.
