This year marks the 10th anniversary of the New York Botanical Garden’s spectacular Orchid Show. The show salutes the brilliant French botanist and artist Patrick Blanc, renowned worldwide for his vertical gardens. I never miss attending this show and I am always overwhelmed by the beauty and variety of the orchids displayed. The Orchid Show runs from March 3rd – April 22nd. There are special events throughout the show including Orchid Evenings where you can sip an orchid inspired cocktail, listen to music, and visit the Shop in the Garden to bring your favorite orchid home.

I love having orchids at home. In addition to the NYBG, some of my other favorite sources for orchids are: Foliage Garden (120 West 28th Street, NYC, 10001, 212-989-3089) and NY Topiary (135 West 28th St., NYC, 10001, 646-380-6096).
