There's nothing like the striking color of orchids to brighten up a November day.

Exotic displays of blooming orchids from around the world will serve as a launchpad for the lesser known native orchids of New England — including the elusive lady’s slipper — at the Massachusetts Orchid Society’s annual “World of Orchids” show.

Mahoney’s Garden Center, at 242 Cambridge St. in Winchester, will host the show in its 10,000 square-foot greenhouse Nov. 3 to 5.

Guests will find information about New England’s native orchids nestled between dazzling displays of unique flowers from around the world. The show will feature hourly tours of the displays, plant raffles, seminars, and educational events, vendors, and orchid art.
