The Gubler family has loved and grown orchids for 3 generations. Originally in Switzerland, Gubler Orchids was opened in 1918 by Heir Gubler. It was his second son, Hans, who moved to California to chase the American Dream and in 1954 started Gubler Orchids (US) selling the orchids literally from his station wagon. Now it is Hans’ son, Chris, who continues the legacy, along with his sister, Heidi.
Come follow our journey through three generations of orchid growers, earning Gubler Orchids the reputation as one of the top quality orchid growers in the world.
