Annual Auction

The DCOS annual orchid auction is unrivaled in its depth and breadth. It's a once a year opportunity to get access to plant material from all over the world, and there are always amazing buying opportunities. The orchid growers supporting our auction provide world class plant material and we have plants provided by our own members as well, many of whom are accomplished growers in their own right with numerous floral and cultural awards recognizing their plants and growing skills. Auctions are a great way to acquire specimen size plants that might otherwise take years for the hobbyist to grow. Join us and see these amazing plants; some you just won't see anywhere else. Whether it's a rare specimen, or a hot deal on an easy to grow, blooming beauty, there is truly something for everyone.

For the second year in a row, our auction will be held in the Garden Room at Monmouth Park. The track has entertainment options to offer to the non-orchid grower as well, so bring your spouse or significant other, enjoy a day out and help support our largest fundraiser of the year! Fun times guaranteed!
