Oncidium Splendidum...Rhynchostylis coelestes...try saying that 10 times fast!

Did you know that there are over 20,ooo species of orchids and that they come in every color combination that you can think of? And, contrary to popular belief a black orchid does not exist.

You can find out more amazing facts and everything else you can possibly think of about this flower by joining us on Thursday, April 1st at 11 a.m. at the Socastee Library. This free gardening workshop will feature guest speaker, Ralph Billeter and he'll be here to answer your questions. He will also have many of his own personal orchids on display.
