NYBG Orchid Show

Submitted by ub on Thu, 02/23/2012 - 22:31

Renowned botanist and vertical gardening provocateur Patrick Blanc creates towering spectacles of tropical life. Dangling from Blanc's signature "green walls" thousands of orchids abandon the constraints of gravity in an explosion of alluring color and fragrance. On Saturdays and Sundays at 1 and 3 p.m., History and Mystery of Orchids takes you on a journey around the world of orchids and shows you how to grow and care for them at home in an exciting series of presentations and demonstrations.

And there's plenty more to do during your Garden visit. Purchase orchids to take home or orchid-themed gifts and items at Shop in the Garden, take orchid-specific classes—including photography and flower arrangement—through the Garden's Adult Education Program, enjoy a delicious meal or a snack at one of the Garden's Cafes, and more. Plan your visit. Get tickets and more information.
