Spring Show: Mar. 31 – Apr. 2, 2023

The GROS held our first Orchid Show in April of 1969 at the Garden Center of Rochester. Many other of our annual shows of that era consisted of groups of orchids displayed on shelves, with little adornment or attempt to create a “natural” or artistic environment that is typical of orchid shows today.

In 1971, the club presented its show at Sibley’s – Rochester’s fabled flagship downtown department store, and over the years, we’ve held our annual Spring Shows at various locations around Rochester.

Our first show to feature American Orchid Society judging dates to 1980, when two plants received awards: Oncidum Purple Envy ‘Suzy’ AM/AOS and Phalaenopsis Spitzberg ‘Mrs. March’, HCC/AOS.
