Thousands of orchids climb to the sky in the 17th annual “Orchid Show”, paying tribute to Singapore, the “City in a Garden,” and its beautiful national flower. Developed in partnership with Gardens by the Bay and Singapore Botanic Gardens, the exhibit at the New York Botanical Garden in the Bronx pays homage to the site’s iconic supertrees, dramatic vertical habitats, as well as the famed arches, a highlight of the National Orchid Garden. In the landmark Enid A. Haupt Conservatory, thousands of colorful orchids in every shape and size surround you, reaching up towering structures and clinging to overhead arches to create a horticultural spectacle. You’ll see NYBG’s exquisite orchid collection as well as varieties showcasing Singapore’s achievements in orchid cultivation, research and conservation.

“”The 17th annual Orchid Show is a dazzling tribute to Singapore, the vibrant “City in a Garden” where these storied flowers are an integral part of the culture and landscape. Developed in partnership with Gardens by the Bay and Singapore Botanic Gardens, the exhibition pays homage to the sites’ iconic Supertrees—dramatic vertical habitats, and famed Arches—a highlight of the National Orchid Garden.

This horticultural spectacle, set in the landmark Enid A. Haupt Conservatory, mesmerizes with thousands of orchids in every shape, color, and size. Treasures from NYBG’s exquisite orchid collection as well as varieties showcasing Singapore’s achievements in orchid hybridization, research, and conservation are also on display.””
