Following the long winter months, Orchids at Kew will once again transform the Princess of Wales Conservatory into a sea of glorious flowers from Saturday February 9.


A celebration of the colour, drama and beauty associated with this extraordinary and diverse group of plants, the vibrant orchids will dominate the lush, wet tropical zone of the Princess of Wales Conservatory.


Kew is home to one of the worlds oldest and most comprehensive species orchid collection, and the Princess of Wales Conservatory displays a small part of the collection on rotation.


These fascinating wild plants can be visited all year round, and in February will be complemented by this breathtaking display of hybrid orchids.
