Miltoniopsis Venus

The official flower of the Victoria Orchid Society.  This striking plant which is a cross between Mps. phalaenopsis & Mps. vexillaria was originally made by Joseph Charlesworth in 1917. Poul Hansen (from VicOS) re-made it in the early 1980's. This community pot was distributed in the Pacific Northwest Region where it has received at least 5 AOS awards.  


The Victoria Orchid Society is a non-profit group of orchid enthusiasts established in 1971.  Our members range from the beginner grower to the expert hobbyist.  The Society meets 10 months per year to display their blooming plants and share information through informal discussion and planned featured talks with expert growers from all over the world. 

Becoming a member of the Victoria Orchid Society will allow you the opportunity to socialize with other orchid enthusiasts while you learn more of the beauty, culture, and history of orchids. We invite you to attend our meeting as a guest and see for yourself the excitement that orchids can bring!
