Santa Barbara International Orchid Show

The annual Santa Barbara International Orchid Show pays homage to a family of flowering plants that boast 25,000 species, among which beauty is ubiquitous and uniqueness is commonplace. Some are sexy (One species attracts male bees by mimicking the look, scent and feel of a female bee) while others are secretive (it took scientists years to find a moth with a foot-long tongue for pollinating an orchid that hides nectar 12 inches deep). The three-day Orchid Show highlights bold and beautiful horticultural innovations and feats of evolution represented by more than 50 orchid exhibitors and vendors from around the world.
