Shangri La Orchid Festival – An Entire Week in October

Orchids have long fascinated plant lovers in Southeast Texas and across the world. Our swamps and the Big Thicket are native habitats for some truly rare and beautiful specimens.

At one time, early botanists could literally become rich by traveling into unknown territories and hunting down undiscovered orchids.

One of the truly great places to see orchids is Shangri La Botanical Gardens in Orange.

Join Shangri La in celebrating the orchid, one of the most beautiful flowers in the world. Though the majority of these plants grow in the tropics, Shangri La’s Epiphyte House features several spectacular varieties including a number that grow wild right here in Southeast Texas. The Orchid Festival features guest speakers and other presenters to cultivate interest and educate the public about the orchid family.
