Lehua Orchids Info & News
Welcome to our more secure website. Our sincere apologies to those of you who were confronted by the results of hacking that happened on our old website. Now that we have this reworked site we can put all our effort into updating the site. WE have added Phrags and eliminated Angraecoids reflecting our transition to becoming "The Slipper Zone". Lycaste will continue but availability will be limited as we need the space for our ever expanding supply of slippers.
We promise to be diligent with our photography. You are welcome to use the photographs on our site, they are there to help you sell. Our award photographer has given permission for us to use the award photos.
Not about the awards we have garnered and they are plenty, 385 AOS awards plus a handful of CSA Awards as of September 8, 2020, but about our ranking on the all-time list of “hybridizers with the most hybrids awarded”
Lehua Orchids is now the most awarded hybridizer of slipper orchids according to Orchid Wiz x6.0.
Click on LIST in Orchid Wiz on the top line. Follow the drop down screen to “Hybridizers with the most Hybrids Awarded”. Narrow the search by Breeding Group “Paph, Phrags, Cypripediums” and click LIST. There is Lehua at the top of a list that has 650 names including a lot of household names. Lehua Orchids has 2o5 awarded hybrids. Lehua is ahead of Rod McClellan (202) Ratcliffe (201) and Terry Root (194). (more…)
Our Half Box size is very popular with many of our customers. It is a box of 15, although the box we use typically can hold as many as 18. There is a handling fee for this size. It is $1.50 per plant, so $22.50 for a box of 15 and $27 if you purchase 18. This basically means you are paying freight but still getting a delivered plant price.
The cd we had offered to societies has become a little dated. It is still available if you are really in need of something, but we would rather not. Unfortunately Graham’s son has gone on to greater things and is no longer interested in producing a new cd. However if we can work out timing and costs Graham is happy to give live talks. However if Graham comes to give a talk, please understand we will not bring plants for sale, that would be competing with our customers. We will sell you plants for your raffle table but not for retail sale.
You are welcome to use any of the photographs on the website. Credit is not necessary; we do not want your customers coming to us! We only use photographs we have taken of our flowers. We do not “borrow” photographs. There will be times when we do not have a photograph on the website, but we are working on it. If you need one that is not on the website, check with us. It may simply be an oversight. Please understand all our plants are seed crosses and seed crosses do show variations in the flowers, sometimes a lot. When we are using a photo of a flower that received an award, we will add that notation.
