The Red Butte Garden Orchid show is held in the conservatory located right next to the main/administrative building. It’s a heavenly place to spend of moment admiring improbably exotic blooms. This event is hosted by the botanical garden but presented by the Utah Orchid Society.

Now, I am no orchid grower but I frequently enjoy them in the house. Of course these orchids are all purchased from Trader Joe, unlabeled, and are (gaps!) thrown away when their blooms fade. I wish I could meet an orchid rescuer that would take them off my hands as I always feel terrible guilt when they are pitched into the compost bin. Longevity with indoor plants is not my forte, being more of a minimalist inside, hoarding plants past their prime does not do. For a considerably wider selection of Orchids, the sale table from Orchid Dynasty, a flower shop in the 9th & 9th area was a sight to behold. Truly impressive.
