Mariposa Garden is a small specialty wholesale nursery. Until recently we only provided hard to find perennials and unusual annuals to retail nurseries and landscapers. Since the late 1990’s, we decided to add a small retail orchid operation to our business. Our concentration has been on cymbidiums although we do have a nice collection of outdoor growers. Our goal is to provide hobbyists with as wide a range of modern cymbidium hybrids as possible. In pursuit of this goal we have acquired flasks from hybridizers in Australia , New Zealand and the USA.

In addition, we have a collection of award winning crosses from the late Tony Valardi and Joe Santy. Each season Joe is continuing to provide us with his exclusive new crosses. Come often to see the latest results.

We also carry some supplies such as bark, pots, fertilizers and stakes.

This site will be used to inform you about open house dates, shows in which we have displays, photos of recent blooms, photos of awards, specials at the nursery and an occasional offering of unbloomed seedlings not currently available at the nursery.
