Structurally, evolutionarily, and aesthetically, orchids resonate with what we at the COLLECTIVE aspire to be and do [they're as complex and diverse as they are stunning]. We could say similarly wonderful things about the good folks that run Orchid Dynasty. It’s a bonafide mom-and-pop, built-from-the-ground-up operation, and they’ve got a borderline-obsessive knowledge of and commitment to the art/trade of orchids, succulents, cacti, and everything else flowering under the sun. As a tried-and-true fan of orchids myself [those who have visited my home know all too well my over-protective love of this particular posy–please don’t touch the f-ing orchid], I can attest to the beauty within these walls. 

Hand over heart, there are some mind-blowing specimens here.

this is the best green house we've ever seen...

It’s a well-known and highly-respected enterprise in our city; people flock from all over to this perfectly situated 9th & 9th spot [showroom + greenhouse] to be dazzled in part by the greenery and in part by the help/smarts of Clint Lewis and Shelly Huynh. It kinda feels like home…we chatted about art, flowers [obviously], and architecture with a few casual f-bombs tossed in for good measure and a run-in or two with some common acquaintances. As evidenced by the photos below, it’s a damn fine place just to wander and be in awe, but I suggest going a step further and making a few of those plants part of your space. #lovewhereyoulive

business is blooming, it seems.

Orchid Dynasty does weddings, galas, and other events…upon my own inevitable demise, I hope they make my funeral look like a stunner. It’s a local joint that we have little trouble supporting: goodly people, running a local business and working to make SLC more beautiful by infusing their space [and yours] with some of nature’s flawless design.
