[VIDEO] New York Botanical Garden's 15th Annual Orchid Show Opens Tomorrow With Thai Theme

Now in its 15th year, the annual Orchid Show exhibition at the New York Botanical Garden opens tomorrow with a theme that pays homage to varied orchids, plants, and rich cultural history of Thailand.

This year’s exhibition in the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory will feature an astonishing 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 culminates in a jaw-dropping scene of a large arched façade in the style of a traditional Thai pavilion—festooned with hundreds of exquisite orchids. Thai dance performances, film screenings, tours, orchid care demonstrations, expert Q&As, and more fill the daylight hours, while the return of our popular Orchid Evenings ensures many memorable celebrations after the sun has set.

See the 15th annual New York Botanical Garden Orchid Show from February 18th through April 9th, 2017. Check out the event page for more information.
