An Orchid Spectacle in the Bronx
Orchids are back and in full bloom at New York City's 17th annual Orchid Show at the Bronx Botanical Garden. Singapore, where the orchid is the national flower, is the inspiration for this year's display. Look up in the landmark Enid A. Haupt Conservatory where thousands of colorful orchids will reach skyward clinging to magnificent overhead arches to create a blooming rainbow. And regularly featured blooms from NYBG’s storied orchid collection as well as varieties unique to Singapore are also on display.
Greatly anticipated Orchid Evenings are back for adults 21 and older, too. This year, feel transported by the colors and flavors of Singapore. Inside the Conservatory after dark, an exhilarating display of lights and orchids offer guests privileged time to enjoy the show's esteemed featured Supertrees. Sip a Singapore Sling and get a bite to eat while freestyle dancers and DJs perform throughout the night. Tickets are available online.
