It may still be chilly winter, but flower fans can escape to a tropical garden paradise this month! Beginning on Feb. 23, the Orchid Show celebrates its 17th year at the New York Botanical Garden with an homage to the wealth of orchids and rich cultural history of Singapore. Singapore is home to more than 220 native orchid species. Native and hybrid orchids alike have become synonymous with the nation. During daylight hours, visitors can enjoy an authentic Singapore vibe with tributes to the Singapore Botanic Gardens’ vertical hanging habitats, tours of the garden and orchid care demonstrations. The Orchid Evening activities will also make sure that the fun will continue after the sun has set. This event is free with an All-Garden Pass. All ages are welcome. Runs during Garden hours through Sunday, April 28.
