Very extensive displays of orchids. Delightful and knowledgable staff educated us on the variety of shapes, smells and growing patterns of numerous orchids. Delightful shop to ship your purchases.

Decided to stop while on our way to Volcano National park. My wheelchair bound mother-in-law was with us & it was an easy walk around the area. Interesting flower - make sure to smell the chocolate and rootbeer orchids.

Beautiful orchids. Hybrids by this family company. I bought many and they held shipping them until I got home from vacay. I've bought from them online and everything was packed w no damage to my orchids. Great company, great service.
