World of Energy to host 5th annual orchid show

UPSTATE — The World of Energy at Oconee Nuclear Station will host a free orchid show and sale this Friday and Saturday. The annual event is a partnership with the Blue Ridge Orchid Society of South Carolina.

This year’s show will feature beautiful displays of orchids of all shapes, sizes and varieties. Society members will be available to answer questions about growing and caring for orchids. Visitors will have the opportunity to learn how easy orchids can be to grow, discover why our local climate is perfect for orchids, learn about the orchid’s history, and join the Blue Ridge Orchid Society.

Orchids will be available for purchase, with proceeds benefiting the orchid society.

The show is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday and noon to 4 p.m. on Saturday.
