The Greater New York Orchid Show
in 1998

The Greater New York Orchid Society is renowned as one of the largest societies in USA. The society holds the Greater New York Orchid Show every year. All photos and information on this page were provided by Mr. Yassir Islam who is a good friend of mine and lives in Washington DC. We will introduce you the some aspects of the show. You can visit the show in more detail on Yassir's Homepage ( Argus Orchids ). If you are interested in the show well, please visit his site.

The Greater New York Orchid Show is held in early spring in the spectacular setting of the Winter Garden in the World Trade Center complex in downtown Manhattan, New York. Free and open to the public, the show attracts orchid enthusiasts from all over the East Coast and is easily accessible by public transport.

Paph. Gold Dollar

Paph. Lynleigh Koopowitz
'Nobuyuki Yoshida'

This flower is very huge. Some people say that it might be 4N Lynleigh Koopowitz. The plant is now in spike again. Hopefully I can bring it in to judging and get it awarded this year. ( Comment from the owner )

In the 20th , June, 1999, Jason who is the owner of the flower above has sent a mail as follows. Paph. Lynleigh Koopowitz 'Nobuyuki Yoshida' just received an AM/AOS ( 82 pts ) today at Judging in New York. This is the best flower they have seen among all the Lynleigh Koopowitz
presented for judging. Color of the flowers are very nice, unlike the other Paph. Lynleigh Koopowitz which tend to be very pale. Petals and sepals are very flat. Most delenatii hybrids tend to have reflex petals and sepals, but it is not present at all on these 2 flowers.
