We are excited to introduce these three brand new seedling crosses available only from our nursery. This is a limited new release with more plants of these hybrids to be available at a later date.
Right now while supplies last, we will send one each of the following plants in a 3" pot for one special price.
*10254 Blc. (Eagle Island x Horace) '#10' x Blc. Misty Girl 'Royal Queen' AM/AOS- Both parents are large growing standards with showy late fall blooming season. Flowers will range from coral to bright lavender. Lovely fragrance!
*10279 Blc. Brunswick Gem 'Surprise' x Lc. Lou Gilmore 'Sunflower'- The first parent was surprise because it was yellow while the rest of the cross is coral to hot pink. We are expecting vibrant yellow art-shades with various red or pink lip markings. Possibly some flares or petal blushing. Large growing standard with great fragrance.
*10281 Lc. Trick or Treat 'Orange Magic' AM/AOS x Laelia harpophylla- These plants will have very slender foliage and arching clusters of bold orange star-shaped blooms. Mid winter flowering season, perfect for shows. Expected to start blooming on younger plants than usual.
Please note that no further discounts, promo codes or coupons apply to this discounted price. Regular Packing and Shipping will be added.
A BIG THANK-YOU To Everyone Who Came to Visit us at the
*Orchids on the Riverbanks* 2019 South Orchid Society Orchid Show
We had a great show and this year our exhibit was called Journey of a Seedpod. We received a 95 point Educational Exhibit Certificate (EEC) from the American Orchid Society for the display, which takes you from seedpod to growing in flask to removing them for greenhouse culture. We hope everyone had a wonderful time!

Winter Packing & Shipping 2018-2019
Beginning November 7th Carter and Holmes will be charging our Winter Packing Charge of $3.50 per plant shipment, instead of our regular $2.50 packing charge. We will be using Heat Packs as needed in order for plants to arrive safely, and when we do so we will charge an additional $0.95. Even though a box may be headed for a warm weather destination, many of our boxes pass through hubs in colder locations. Thank you!
Let Us Watch the Weather for You! We check the weather en route every morning before shipping plant orders, and we guarantee safe delivery to any address where someone will be available to accept delivery. We can safely ship orchids in bud and bloom through temperatures of 32 degrees and above, and we can ship orchids not coming into bud or bloom through slightly lower temperatures when using heat packs.
