    The Fall Mid-America Orchid Congress will be held jointly with the Wisconsin Orchid Society Fall Show in Milwaukee, Wisconsin September 14-15, 2019. The Fall Show will be presented in the “Show Dome” of the Mitchell Park Horticultural Conservatory Saturday, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. and Sunday, 9 a.m.-4 p.m.

    Mid-America lectures and meetings will be located at the nearby Art Deco-style Ambassador Hotel Milwaukee, 2308 West Wisconsin Avenue, which will provide shuttle service to the Domes.

    Ms. Wenqing Perner will give the Shirley Burr Moore Memorial lecture at 1 p.m. Saturday on “Chinese Cypripediums and their Culture,” as well as “The Rare, the New and the Unusual” in Chinese orchids following the banquet. Wenqing and her late husband, Holger, developed and operated Hengduan Mountains Biotechnology Nursery and Laboratory in Sichuan, China that features Cypripediums, Cymbidiums, Paphiopedilums and other Chinese orchids. Pre-order information will soon be available on the Wisconsin Orchid Society website: www.wisconsinorchidsociety.com. Fred Clarke will speak at 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. Saturday on “Catasetums” and on “Australian Dendrobiums.” For orders, see Sunset Valley Orchids: www.sunsetvalleyorchids.com.
