Our guest speaker on Zoom on May 13, at 7:00PM PST will be Dr. Leslie Ee. He will be joining us from Toronto to share his knowledge of Cattleya species with a presentation entitled “Cattleya warscewiczii and Its Contribution to Large Blue Flowers”. Leslie, who is the President of the Canadian Orchid Congress and has been an occasional guest at our on-line meetings, was born in Borneo where he was surrounded by orchids. He has grown our favorite plants himself for over 30 years with selected and heirloom cattleya species being particular favorites.

Our speaker is an AOS Associate Judge with the Toronto judging center and has enjoyed traveling widely to attend overseas orchid shows and visit nurseries and habitats. He is committed to the sharing of orchid knowledge and to conservation efforts for local orchids around the world.
