The Orchid Maze is one delight after another. The perfume from hundreds of orchid flowers fills the air as you gaze in amazement at the spectacular blooms. Who knew there were so many different varieties of orchids? And the colors! Breathtaking. A very nice gift...More

Beautiful flowering plants "designed" on site. We bring guests here frequently, and even those who don't love orchids are impressed. Black orchid, anyone?!
