Last Sunday’s post showed the color and drama orchids can bring to your trees. This week, I give you a tour of the inner workings of Hawaiian Flowers.
Marla has a small gift shop attached to the greenhouses where you can browse.
Walking from the gift shop into the greenhouses, you are carried away to the tropics. You will want to take home one of each variety!
Many years ago, I took all the horticulture courses offered by Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. The smells and sights of greenhouses and workrooms bring back memories of that time. So for me, those are still the most exciting areas of any commercial enterprise.
The results from TLC and perfect growing conditions, however, also bring a particular kind of joy, as you will see in this slide show of Marla’s orchids in full bloom.
Although most orchids have no particular scent, some now have been bred to smell like chocolate (I have one), even coconut and cinnamon.
If you want to order orchids shipped to you from Marla McCasland, email her at this address – hawaiianflowers at alohabroadband dot com.
A hui hou!
