Hadley Cash

of Marriott Orchids


Hadley began growing orchids nearly thirty-five years ago and formed Marriott Orchids in 1985. In the early Paphs and Their Culture 1990's, he built his first greenhouse of 2,500 square feet, and started a breeding program focused on producing Paphiopedilums of the highest quality.


Hadley married his wife Deborah in 1997, and in 1998, just before the birth of their son Austin, his orchid business became a full-time career. Marriott Orchids expanded its growing area in 1998, to 6,000 square feet.


To date Hadley has received over 500 American Orchid Society awards, including 20 FCC's (First Class Certificate's). Seven crosses have been awarded AQ’s (Award of Quality) from the AOS, and Hadley has won AOS awards for the Best FCC Paphiopedilum of the Year and Best FCC of Any Genus. In May of 2015, Hadley received the highest distinction of his career… being awarded the AOS Award for Excellence in Hybridizing. This award is given for a lifelong commitment to hybridizing excellence.


Mr. Cash has written many published articles on the genus Paphiopedilum and its hybrids for the AOS, Orchid Digest, and the Slipper Orchid Journal. He has given presentations throughout the US and internationally, sharing both his love and expertise with Slipper Orchids.


Please join us on February 6, 2020 at 7:30 PM to hear Hadley's presentation.
