Lachenalia and Orchid Exhibition


The UK's pre-eminent collection of Lachenalias (the 'leopard lily'), alongside a selection of orchids from Exbury Gardens' glass houses, will be on display in the Five Arrows Gallery for visitors to enjoy when the gardens open.

Lachenalias represent one of the fastest-growing collector plants in the country. The Genus is full of interest, with 133 (and counting!) species offering a variety of colour during the dull winter months. For lachenlias, their size makes them the ideal plant for a kitchen pot, windowsill or conservatory, and they have an exceptionally long flowering season. Exbury's first Lachenalias will traditionally flower in October, and the last as late as May.

The exhibition will also display a wonderful selection of wildlife sculptures created by Long Ly. Sculptor Long Ly is originally from Saigon, Vietnam, before escaping the communists, aged 8, with his family on a rickety fishing boat. He was settled in England and has come to being an artist after being 'discovered' by Nick de Rothschild. He now works and exhibits his work at the Palais des Vaches Gallery. His pieces are made from recycled metal, ranging from pots and pans to plumbing pipes and carpet dividers - his imagination shows no bounds.
