They boast thick, luxurious petals painted in sometimes extravagant shades, and they make a better gift for your lady-friend than a dozen roses. They're orchids.
If you love orchids and want to learn how to properly care for them, you're in luck. Today, the Idaho Botanical Garden is hosting Culture and Care of Orchids. Starting at 10 a.m., Janet Crist of the Treasure Valley Orchid Society and American Orchid Society will give home horticulturalists insight into how to grow and protect their orchids.
The cost is $10 for IBG members and $15 for the public. To register, call Renee White at 208-343-8649.
