If you've never been to an orchid farm, you have to visit Hilltop. And if you know everything there is to know about orchids, Dick Wells can teach you a few things. This is one of the most fascinating places in Indiana.
In four abundant greenhouses in Cloverdale is the largest orchid farm in Indiana, and one of the largest in the Midwest, offering individual attention and an unparalleled selection of high quality, unique orchid plants.
Dick Wells has been growing orchids since 1954, and his wife, Sandy, inherited her love of Phalaenopsis, Cattleyas, Oncidiums, Lady Slippers and other varieties that are easy to grow in the home, when the two married 50+ years ago. Many of Hilltop’s orchids have been nationally recognized and awarded for their high quality.
From the new grower to the most experienced aficionado, Hilltop Orchids enjoys helping guests gain the knowledge and confidence to grow these beautiful plants, most from Hilltop’s own breeding program inside connected greenhouses with almost 10,000 square feet of growing space. Orchid growing supplies are also available, including custom potting soil and fertilizer.
