Be transported to a tropical paradise. The display in the Mansion Loggia showcases a series of stylized columns erupting in elaborate headdresses exploding with orchids, lending form and structure to the space, while a lush ground layer becomes an interpretation of a tropical forest floor.
This year’s design takes an artistic perspective on the epiphytes’ natural growth habit.
An epiphyte is a plant that grows on another plant, like orchids, which are often found growing on trees and other substrate. The sweeping staircase in the Mansion sets the stage for the display in the Loggia with a graceful prelude, and new this year, visitors will also discover a stunning orchid display in the Botanic Hall atrium. Experience the beauty and wonder of orchids at Cheekwood this winter!
