Take a break from the cold weather and step inside a springtime wonderland at the New York Botanical Garden’s annual Orchid Show.
Singapore—where the national flower is an orchid—is the inspiration for the 17th annual Orchid Show. The Enid A. Haupt Conservatory will showcase thousands of mesmerizing orchid displays that pay homage to the "City in the Garden."
Developed in partnership with Singapore Botanic Gardens and Gardens by the Bay, this year’s exhibit is a “tribute to Singapore’s rich legacy of innovative garden design, spectacular floral display, and achievements in orchid cultivation,” according to the NYBG website.
Located in the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory, The Orchid Show: Singapore will showcase renditions of the site’s iconic Supertrees and famed Arches—a highlight of the National Orchid Garden.
The kaleidoscope of colors and spectacular orchids include dancing lady (Oncidium), rainbow (Vanda), cane (Dendrobium), and Asian corsage orchids (Cymbidium), and many other exotic tropical species.
Visitors can also attend Orchid Evenings during select nights when they can mingle among the flowers lit up with lights while enjoying live music and dance, dining, and drinks.
Ticket prices vary. All visitors, including Members, need tickets for entry.
The Orchid Show: Singapore runs from February 23 through April 28, 2019.
