Ann Arbor Orchid Festival to highlight one of nature's most amazing flowers
The incredible orchid. It's beautiful, fragile and a wonder of evolution. Anyone who has seen "Adaptation," knows they have changed to make pollination easier, whether it be by mimicking bees or shooting pollen at passing insects. Celebrate these amazing flowers at the Ann Arbor Orchid Festival at Matthaei Botanical Gardens this weekend.
