Hackneau (Pronounced hack-no) is the combination of our two last names that we use for our orchid collection.  Courtney is a wetland ecologist by training and is currently the Director of Coastal Biology at the University of North Florida in Jacksonville, Florida.  Rose is an artist with a biologist's eye and an avid gardener and computer nerd wanna-be. 

Courtney Hackney was raised with orchids growing wild in the Florida Keys.  He met Rose Ganucheau* while teaching biology in Southern Louisiana.  They started their orchid collection in North Carolina in the 80’s in a small lean-to greenhouse attached to the garage, convinced that a 6’ x 8’ greenhouse was plenty of space for an orchid collection.  A few greenhouses, a few thousand plants, and thirty years of experience later, Courtney is still growing orchids, albeit in a much bigger space, and Rose is still admiring and painting them. 

In our website you will find lots of information on orchids.  Courtney’s interest in American orchid hybridizing  resulted in a book, American Cattleyas, published in 2004, a few snipets of which are found on the site along with many old and restored photos.  There is also an extensive collection of his monthly orchid growing columns; Growing Tips, that is carried by numerous Orchid Societies.  While we don’t grow or sell commercially, we do offer occasional divisions of “classic” orchids, flasks of some of our crosses, and stem props of some of our award-winning phalaenopsis.  You can find these listed in The Hackneau Collection.

While you’re here, take a minute to stroll through the Art Gallery.  It includes portraits of orchids as well as the plants growing in their natural habitat.  There are galleries of other flowers and landscapes, and print galleries, too.
