Orchid Celebration: Mimicry & Reflection | Kids Out and About San Antonio

Orchid Celebration: Mimicry & Reflection

Celebrate the planet’s largest group of blooming flowers at the San Antonio Botanical Garden during our 4th annual Orchid Celebration. From January 27th through February 26th, discover the beauty and intrigue of orchids throughout the Lucile Halsell Conservatory. This year’s theme, Mimicry & Reflection, explores how many orchids use deception to attract their pollinators by mimicking other flowers or insects. During Orchid Celebration there will be beautiful plant displays, orchid photography, classes, and a conference on native orchid conservation.

Displays & Shows

This year’s theme is Mimicry & Reflection. Orchid flowers are stunningly beautiful but can also be deceptive. Orchid flowers mimic an object that is attractive to the pollinator, however, when the pollinator visits the flower they find that there is no reward.

Partnered organization, Alamo Orchid Society,  will have displays and presentations throughout the Lucile Halsell Conservatory.
