Orchid Extravaganza 

On View January 19–March 24

Connect with nature at its most serene and experience the peaceful beauty of winter—inside and out.

Inside, embrace the exuberance of a lush sanctuary filled with thousands of vibrant, artfully presented orchids. Lavish Cymbidium dramatically spill from basins, grand Phalaenopsis float overhead, and tiny orchid species make a big impact, among other show-stopping arrangements.
