Fort Myers in Lee County, Florida — The American South (South Atlantic)
Orchid Lane and Friendship Walk
Today orchids like the Phaelanopsis, Dendrobium, and Cattlyea can be seen throughout the gardens, as well as along Orchard Lane. The Estates is a Convention on International Trade and Endangered Species (CITES) designated organization by the U.S. Department of the Interior and receives plants from throughout the world.
The stones along the pathway create the Friendship garden features at Seminole Lodge. Each stone was a gift to the Edisons from friends, family and local community members and leaders. This path started in 1928 with a stone from Hamilton Holt, the president of Rollins College in Winter Park, Florida. There are also stones in memory of Minaís mother
