Orchid Month

Surround yourself with the warmth and fragrance of Hillwood’s greenhouse this winter and see hundreds of orchids blooming in concert.

With a greater number and variety of orchids in bloom during March than any other season at Hillwood, a month-long focus on these exotic beauties features workshops, tours, and colorful displays. 

Hillwood’s founder Marjorie Merriweather Post was enamored with finely-crafted and beautiful objects. While this passion is most frequently associated with her art collection, it also holds true for her orchids, a large collection of which was assembled throughout her lifetime. During the month of March, visitors to Hillwood are treated not only to the brilliance and fragrance of these exotic beauties as they bloom in abundance in the Greenhouse, but also to engaging opportunities to explore Post's original collection, learn more about the collection today, and hear from outside experts about the history and care of these favored botanicals.
