Even though it was the Nally family (second owners) who did most of the work with orchids at Palm Cottage, orchids are part of the heritage of Nehrling Garden. Several specimens have been donated and uncovered during cleanup events or projects.
Once funding is secured, the greenhouse will be fully restored and we can properly exhibit the orchid collection.
Dr Henry Nehrling purchased his Gotha property in 1885, and by 1902 was well underway with researching and growing caladiums, camellias, bamboos, amaryllis, water lilies, magnolias and palms (it was originally called Palm Cottage Gardens), among other species of natives and exotics, in addition to being one of the first Field Offices for the USDA’s Office of Foreign Seed and Plant Introduction.
