Bruce is a leading force in the orchid world. His journey began with the orchid resurgence in the eighties when his orchid decorating work was featured commercially in the expansion of the Nordstrom chain across America and with clients including Saks Fifth Ave, Ralph Lauren, Hermes, Gumps, Singapore Flower Association, leading hotels, and international decorators. He continues to work with private clients building and maintaining orchid collections, creating outdoor gardens, and putting together orchid displays for parties and events. 

Bruce has appeared on numerous television, cable, and radio shows and has been featured in many publications. Owner of Bruce Rogers Orchids, he is also the co-owner of an internationally prominent wholesale Sobralia nursery, OzGardens. Sobralia rogersiana has been named in his honor. As the author of The Orchid Whisperer, Bruce Rogers shares very practical advice on buying and caring for the most popular orchids as well as unique ideas for displaying them.
