Fall Orchid Auction

Posted by

The TOS will have its Fall Fundraising Auction on Saturday, September 22nd at the Beech Shelter at Crabtree Lake Park in Morrisville, NC (near RTP airport).  Once you are inside the park, the shelter is located off the 3rd driveway to the right.

There will be orchids from: H&R Nurseries, Kalapana Tropicals, and The Orchid Trail!  We’re expecting some amazing budded and near blooming sized Oncidium-alliance and Cattleya orchids as well as flowering Dendrobiums of all shapes and sizes.

Rain or shine – the shelter is large, so we’ll be comfortable either way.  Come out and bid on some beautiful new orchids to help support our society and our upcoming Orchid Show!

All sales are final.

The auction is open to the public – all visitors are welcome!

A pot-luck style lunch begins at Noon – so, bring a covered dish to share!  During this time, socialize and look over the plants to be auctioned.  The Auction will start at 1:00PM.

We will have a powerpoint slideshow with pictures and information on each plant, so you know what you are bidding on.


Here’s the plant list – just remember you don’t have to look every single thing up, because we’ll have a slideshow with bloom pictures (or parent pictures if the cross has no pictures yet).
