The New York Botanical Garden (NYBG) is the largest botanic garden within a U.S. city. Regardless of when you visit, there’s usually a special exhibit or show happening. Since 2002, the NYBG has been putting on a popular Orchid Show that has awed everyone who sees it. While the NYBG did not have the full exhibition in 2021 due to COVID-19, the Orchid Show is back for the 2022 season.
Running from the end of February through the beginning of May, the Orchid Show offers a stunning display of various orchid varieties and colors in beautiful and sometimes surreal arrangements made almost entirely of flowers. Each year, the NYBG brings a renowned florist to design the exhibits based around a central theme. The 2022 theme is Kaleidoscope, and previous years’ themes included Singapore at Night, Thailand, Orchid Delirium, and much more.
