“The Orchid Show: Thailand” at NYBG
February 21 – April 7, 2017
New York Botanical Garden (Bronx, NY)
“The Orchid Show” celebrates its 15th year at The New York Botanical Garden with an homage to Thailand. Home to more than 1,200 native orchid species, Thailand has, over the last century, become the world’s leading exporter of cultivated tropical orchids. This year’s exhibition at the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory will feature a gorgeous array of blooming orchids in a lush tropical garden, including a rainbow of vanda orchids, whose large patterned blooms are widely popular in Thai gardens and homes. The show’s centerpiece is a large arched façade in the style of a traditional Thai pavilion — festooned with hundreds of exquisite orchids. Round out your visit with tours, orchid care demonstrations, expert Q&As, and more. Come and celebrate one of the plant world’s most beautiful flowers at 2017’s Thai-inspired exhibition. Your All-Garden Pass also includes admission to the Everett Children’s Adventure Garden, Native Plant Garden, tram tour, garden grounds, and all exhibitions and public programs on the day of your visit.
