About Us

The Orchid Zone is a premier breeder of Paphiopedilum, Phragmipedium and other genera of orchids. The Orchid Zone is also the proud owner of the Golden Gate Orchids collection of Odontoglossum.

The Orchid Zone was founded by Terry Root in 1981. The quality of our collection and the success of our breeding lines are entirely due to Terry’s hard work, passion, and insight.
