Details

Kew’s first ever Orchids Festival on the theme of Colombia
Colombia is the world’s most biodiverse country for orchids with 4,270 species
Dazzling displays inspired by Colombia’s wildlife and plant diversity
Colombia’s landscape is as diverse as the flora and fauna that inhabit it, from tropical beaches to snow-capped mountains and everything in between. Home to more orchid species than anywhere else in the world, Colombia’s unparalleled biodiversity and vibrant culture is the inspiration for Kew’s 24th annual Orchids Festival in February 2019.

Stepping into the Princess of Wales Conservatory, visitors will find themselves transported to an entrancing paradise evoking the sights, smells and sounds of Colombia. The experience is an immersive journey through the different zones of the glasshouse where visitors will encounter staggeringly beautiful orchid displays which each represent aspects of Colombian wildlife and culture.
