With orchid show season in full swing on the West Coast, the Victoria Orchid Show and Sale did not disappoint. Under sunny skies, members of the CVIOS brought in many wonderful plants to display at Our Lady of Fatima Church Hall in Victoria which took place March 2nd and 3rd, 2019.
Other displays at the Victoria Show included the Vancouver Orchid Society, Paramount Orchids, Brad’s Greenhouse, Kingfisher Orchids and Forestview Gardens, along with individual displays from Joe Chow and Poul Hansen.
CVIOS members received several ribbons including these:
The Show Champion went to Paramount Orchids for this spectacular Lc Drumbeat "Heritage".
And the Reserve Show Champion was Phrag Amiyabha Prospect Lake grown by Poul Hansen.
Overall, it was a wonderful show and we would like to thank all of the participants from CVIOS who contributed their time to set up, take down, transport, photography and for sharing their enthusiasm.
And we’d like to thank the Victoria Orchid Society show committee for hosting another successful show.
We look forward to receiving the results from the AOS Western Canada Judging Centre as there were several contenders! Here are the teams hard at work:
Remember to mark your calendars for the Vancouver Orchid Society Show and Sale March 23 and 24. We hope to see you there!
