NL: 600 White World orchids from Piet Vijverberg adorn Keukenhof

Keukenhof opened its doors to the general public this year on 22 March. As always, the Beatrix Pavilion hosts an orchid exhibit for eight weeks. It is here in this pavilion that Dutch grower Piet Vijverberg is displaying almost 600 White World orchids.

The Beatrix Pavilion
This isn't the first year that the White World orchid has been shown during Keukenhof. Piet Vijverberg supplied the Beatrix Pavilion with a number of orchids in 2017. The products in this pavilion have to remain attractive throughout the eight weeks it is open, and the White World orchid excelled at this last year. So it's no wonder that Piet Vijverberg was asked to supply White World orchids this year: 600 of them.

White World
White World is a pure white Phalaenopsis cultivated exclusively by Piet Vijverberg. The Keukenhof floral arrangers have used the White World orchids on and around the impressive 'photo tower' in the centre of the pavilion. The orchid show is open throughout the entire Keukenhof period, from 22 March through 13 May. Keukenhof attracts around 1.4 million visitors from all over the world every year.
