The orchid family includes over 30,000 recorded species and many additional thousands of hybrids. They occur on every continent except Antarctica with the heaviest concentration being in the tropics.

The diversity within this group is staggering. Orchids come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, and in almost every color of the rainbow.

The St. George orchid collection includes 60 species and hundreds of hybrid orchids. Visitors can enjoy a year round display of blooming specimens in the Marmaduke Orchid House.

Alert visitors can find many specimens thriving in the trees throughout the Gardens including examples of species native to St. Croix.

Blooming specimens of the Garden’s orchid collection are displayed in the Marmaduke Orchid House, which was a post-Emancipation workers’ cottage.
