March witnesses the flowering peak of numerous exotic orchids. Many of these extraordinary plants open their blossoms in March – some capturing the eye with their vibrant colours, others with their peculiar form. Some orchids have blossoms so tiny that they are almost invisible without a magnifying glass. These flowers have the power to turn an ordinary day into an exciting adventure in the world of plants.
Among greenhouse plants, the Tallinn Botanic Garden Orchid Exhibition showcases orchid varieties both from the nature as well as those bred by man. In addition to the familiar moth orchids (Phalaenopsis), a wide range of other tropical orchids will be on display: Venus slippers (Paphiopedilums), Vandas, Boat Orchids (Cymbidiums), and Epidendrums, Dendrobiums, Masdevallias, Oncidiums and many more.
