Vivid images from the Hillwood archives rarely seen explore the floral design trends Post embraced throughout the decades. Discover how Post elevated the standard floral designs of the 50s and 60s by leveraging her large private orchid collection for fresh cut flowers. Take a virtual behind-the-scenes tour to see how Hillwood’s horticulture staff continues this sixty-year tradition of growing cut flowers in the cutting garden and greenhouses for beautiful floral displays year-round.
