August 7 meeting: Historic Cattleyas

Breeding cattleyas has been going on for over 100 years. Jeff Bradley has been growing some of these historic hybrids since he was six years old and will be speaking to us about them and the people he knew who hybridized them and grew them. Jeff’s collection now numbers over 3,000 species and hybrids. Come join us as we hear about and see these gorgeous catts! We will be having our usual table judging for members also and our raffle as well.

Orchids 101 will be at 2pm in the greenhouse with Lorna leading the discussion on general orchid naming and care.
