Botanical illustrations lined the pages of Victorian Era publications paired with tales of their discovery, medicinal properties, characteristics and more. Colorful images printed from etched plates began to grace the pages of magazines and books throughout the Victorian Era and today those prints remain highly collectible and desirable. The discovery, collection and documentation of orchids in that era drove explorers to all corners of the world in a craze such that it was dubbed "Orchidelirium." This winter, take a horticultural journey through the Victorian Era with a selection of antique prints from local collector Craig McCausland complimented by a gorgeous Victorian-inspired living display celebrating the "orchid mania" of the 19th century with a hand-selected collection of orchids and tropical plants.
