Lincoln Road Blanketed with 500 Native Orchids

MIAMI TODAY — JULY 9,  2019 — BY ERO PARTSAKOULAKI Walking on Miami Beach this summer can be even more mesmerizing than usual. Since Tuesday morning a block of Lincoln Road has been blanketed with 500 native orchids, planted among the palms and hardwood trees.

Over eight species of the vibrant plant were donated to the City of Miami Beach by Terranova, one of South Florida’s leading real estate firms, contributing to the city’s goal to plant a total of 20,000 native orchids throughout the urban island.

“The fact that we make something beautiful and exciting that our residents and visitors will like, while at the same time doing good to the environment, is just an incredible opportunity for all of us,” said Stephen Bittel, Terranova’s chariman.
