Miami-Kendall Hotel for Redland Orchid Festival

If you’re an orchid lover, then make sure you visit the Redland Orchid Festival on May 18 – 20, 2018 when you stay at our Miami-Kendall hotel. The Festival will feature over 60 vendors and provide a chance to discover rare orchids from around the world. Orchid hobbyists generally acknowledge South Florida’s Redland Orchid Festival as the one event of the year that should not be missed.

Orchids are a passion for many people. They are easily distinguished from other plants because they share some common characteristics, or "apomorphies". Among these are bilateral symmetry of the flower (zygomorphism), resupinate flowers, a highly modified petal (labellum), fused stamens and carpels, and extremely small seeds. The Redland Orchid Festival in Miami will feature a wide assortment of high quality orchids, great shopping opportunities, and a free lecture series that taps into the minds of visiting orchid growers and presents topics of interest to all orchid collectors.

You can also submit your own orchids and have them judged by the American Orchid Society (AOS). Entries should be submitted on Thursday, May 17th between noon and 3:00pm. Get more information about the Redland Orchid Festival from the friendly staff at our hotel in Kendall.
