Paphiopedilum Jennifer Reinoso
(Paph. Mem. Hirohisa Kawai x Paph. godefroyae)
2015 seemed to be a record breaking year for the Redland International Orchid Festival which ran through the weekend. There were sixteen awards given at AOS judging. It also seemed as if attendance was above average, at least on the two days I was there. Florida orchid clubs arrived in organized bus tours which is a relaxing way to get there. Weather was warm but a breeze kept things comfortable, especially under the many large tropical fruit trees. If you have never been, put the Redland Festival on your bucket list!
