Danger and Desire – The Seductive Power of Orchids

As symbols of mystery, desire, danger and wealth, orchids have inspired countless works of art, literature, film and fashion. Their complexity, diversity and rarity have fascinated scientists and obsessed the rich.

In this Old Laboratory exhibition at RHS Garden Wisley, discover beautiful botanical artworks and rare books from the RHS collections, and find out how our different perceptions of orchids – as aphrodisiacs, carnivorous predators, and mass-market commodities – have evolved over time. Included in normal garden admission.
