On a leisurely drive through Santa Barbara, Ron Midgett glimpsed cymbidium orchids growing in people’s yards. The cluster of star-shaped blooms, the vibrant hues, and the way the petals seemed to collapse into themselves all had Ron hooked.

Four decades later, he has taken his love of orchids far beyond the realms of adoration. He has grown orchids across the United States, bred his own blooms, and assessed hybrid blossoms as an accredited judge for the American Orchid Society. And at New Earth Orchids, he introduces gardeners to dozens of orchid breeds, earning a slew of positive press and love letters from bumblebees. Additionally, he strives to make orchid growing accessible to novice gardeners by providing growing tips, stocking proper supplies, and offering free workshops.

The petal purveyors at this locally owned flower shop know how to arrange blossoms for all manner of occasions. Suitable for cocktail parties and teacup-canine conventions, the Arrive In Style bouquet bursts onto the scene in a glass vase limo with a light pink rose tiara, a white Asiatic lily, and a cushion spray chrysanthemum boa ($34.95+). Bright yellow roses, white daises, and chrysanthemums spring from the smiley face mug in the Be Happy bouquet ($32.95+), and a cake made entirely from vibrant flowers forms the Your Special day ($52.95+) arrangement, far less offensive to bury your neighbor's nose in than a cake made from flour. Browse Amanda's inventory online before calling to place an order (local delivery available), or simply swing by the shop to let your sniffer identify the best bundle through Morse-coded nostril flares.
