San Luis Obispo County
Cymbidium and dendrobium orchids flourish in a very specific climate - warm, breezy days, cool nights, and winters where freezing temperatures are rare. The Central Coast of California enjoys this rare Mediterranean climate, and no place is more perfect than by the coastal sand dunes of San Luis Obispo county. There, on the south slope of Black Lake Canyon, a thousand orchid plants grow displaying many thousands of blooms from November through the summer. This is Nipomo Grande Orchids and Concierge Nursery (NGO).
Since 2006, Nipomo Grande Orchids has been collecting the finest named varieties of cymbidium and dendrobium orchids from across California – Solana Beach, Fortuna, Carpinteria, and Santa Barbara. Hundreds of unique varieties of every imaginable color and habit – cascading, standards, fragrant intermediates, miniatures, and massive specimen plants showing a hundred blooms each are grown.
The flowers are displayed daily in Orchid Alley at Something Different in historic Arroyo Grande, 102 W Branch St (at Bridge St) and weekends in Nipomo at 188 W Tefft St (near Thompson)
