Any plan for the weekend?
Please don’t waste this such good weather in New York City.
How about going to a beautiful garden?
The orchid show is on at NYBG!
Each year, this eagerly anticipated exhibition displays thousands of orchids in the country’s largest curated show featuring orchids. In 2013, The Orchid Show dramatically transforms The New York Botanical Garden’s landmark Enid A. Haupt Conservatory into a lush rainforest.
This year’s exhibition is inspired by the 19th-century craze sparked by a single orchid bloom, which came to be known as Orchidelirium.Visitors to the landmark Enid A. Haupt Conservatory will be transported on an epic journey that engages all of thesenses and underscores the allure and intrigue of these exquisite beauties.
The Orchid Show: Orchidelirium features:
Thousands of orchids in a stunning array of colors, sizes, shapes, and textures.
Highlights of the far-flung adventures of daring explorers who risked life and limb to secure these captivating and exotic flowers from danger- laden jungles around the world for determined collectors.
Aesthetic delights in the Haupt Conservatory, such as displays of orchids as they grow in the wild, in much the same way the Victorian- era explorers first encountered them, to cultivation in the greenhouse.
Open to the public February 27 through April 17, 2016.
