To celebrate more than fifty years of orchid growing, we bring you our brand new, upgraded web site. May this be as enjoyable and rewarding experience to you as growing and hybridising orchids has been to us.
Starting as a hobby, first in Durban and then Pretoria and expanding in the accommodating weather of White River,
Van Rooyen Orchids has grown into a substantial orchid nursery.
Roelie van Rooyen (a retired eye-surgeon) and his wife Angela are international judges and have travelled extensively.
Their interest in orchids has brought them many wonderful friends all over the world.
In 1987 their son-in-law and daughter, Sieg and Linet Hamman, joined the ranks. Six dedicated nursery workers complete the team.
During our frequent travels we have managed to bring back many famous stud plants to use in our hybridising program.
We endeavour to have a variety of species and hybrids of different genera available. Plants from Van Rooyen Orchids have received numerous quality awards over the past years. We are especially proud that many of these were won by our own seedlings ‘born and bred’ in our laboratory in White River.
You will notice that nearly all the plants listed are flowering size. Some of these are not usually available but as we have been growing them for many years, we are now able to sell divisions at a reasonable price.
All the catalogue plants, and many more, are available at our orchid nursery just outside White River.
