Welcome to Oceans of Orchids Show and Sale!

In 2010, Valentine's Day falls on Sunday, February 14, which coincides with the Chinese New Year celebrations for the Year of the Tiger. In the spirit of holidays, the Newport Harbor Orchid Society (NHOS) will host its Annual Orchid Show and Sale on Friday, February 12 through Sunday, February 14, at the Westminster Mall, Orange County, California.

This year show's theme "For the Love of Orchids" will feature hundreds of different orchid species and hybrids most of which grow easily outdoors in Southern California's coastal climate. There will be something for everyone.


Synonymous with elegance, intrigue, and whimsy, orchids are among the most beautiful of flowers in the plant family, coming in all shapes and colors. Their beauty will be showcased in numerous exhibits offered by hobbyists and professional growers. In addition to the displays, there will be a sales area featuring many select growers from all over Southern California including: Cal-Orchid, Casa de las Orquideas, Hatfield Orchids, to name a few.

Orchid culture classes will provide the new grower with tips on watering, feeding, light and temperature requirements. All of the speakers are expert growers who are eager to share their knowledge, growing tricks, and enthusiasm for orchids. Hands-on potting workshop will also be available for the new growers who have never repotted an orchid.

Founded in 1979, The Newport Harbor Orchid Society is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year. With over 250 members from Orange, Los Angeles, Riverside, and San Diego Counties, the NHOS meets on the third Tuesday of each month at
8 p.m.
