Lachenalia & orchid exhibition 2020
See the UK's eminent collection of lachenalias, plus a fantastic selection of orchids!
Location: Five Arrows Gallery
Spearheaded by Nicholas de Rothschild, Exbury's lachenalia exhibition has substantially grown in size over the last few years. Most recently, by the acquisition of the late Bill Squires' National Collection. Also included in the exhibition will be a stunning collection of orchids, grown right here in Exbury's glasshouses. Our plant display will be accompanied by interpreation panels, explaining more about the genus and its history here at Exbury.
Sometimes referred to as the Leopard Lily, Lachenalias are bulbous perrennials with upwards of 130 species. They have an exceptionally long flowering season; from October and over the winter months, with some continuing through until May. Those on display in Exbury's exhibition will be at their very best in March, showcasing a compendium of bright oranges, yellows and pinkish-reds.
