Orchid Sales

At Orchid Trail, we pride ourselves in being able to provide an ever-changing variety of orchids in our sales houses and online. Our orchids are for sale in bud or bloom year round in our retail sales greenhouses. We provide a wide array of species and hybrids of orchid genera at reasonable prices. We sell orchids both in our greenhouses and online.We provide over 6,000 square feet, so be sure to check out our orchid inventory, as we have 2,000 types of orchids in our greenhouse sales space. When ordering orchids in full bloom for special occasions, such as weddings, we need six weeks in advanced ordering for large orders in full bloom. A deposit may also be requested for such special occasions. Our orchids are well established, mature plants in a large selection of hybrids and species.
