Orchids on Display at Foster Botanical Gardens
If you are tired of staying home, and if you miss walking around enjoying orchids on display, you may want to grab your masks and head into town to visit the Foster Botanical Gardens in Honolulu. The grounds there are expansive, so it is easy to avoid crowds.
There you will find three areas that are dedicated to orchids. Near the Butterfly Garden, you will find the Orchid Conservatory pictured above. Many types of orchids in varying colors are beautifully displayed along with numerous other plants.
Then if you go toward the Nuuanu street side of the botanical gardens, just past the Candle Tree, there is the Hybrid Orchids area. Hybrid orchids are made from crossing different species together to create interesting new varieties of orchids.
For the third orchid area, head mauka toward the Hawaiian Plants display and next to that are the Giant Orchids. The Giant Leopard Orchid, Grammatophyllum scriptum, is named for its spotted flowers. There is also the Tiger Orchid, Grammatophyllum speciosum, which is the largest orchid in the world.
The Foster Botanical Gardens are located at 180 N. Vineyard Blvd. in Honolulu, admission for Hawaii
Residents is $3 and parking is free.

The Windward Orchid Society meets at 7:30 p.m. on the first Wednesday of every month at the King Intermediate School Cafeteria, located at 46-155 Kamehameha Hwy. in Kaneohe.
