The Orchid ShowMarch 2-April 22, 2013
The 11th annual exhibition celebrates this storied flower in all its amazing forms with thousands of brilliantly colored orchids. The largest exhibition of its kind in the United States also offers insight into caring for orchids, music from around the world, and a gorgeous setting for evening cocktails.

Tens of thousands of blooms--blue and purple vandas, green and yellow cymbidiums, delicate pink and white moth orchids, and more--stand out amid stately palms and exotic tropical leaves. Read more.
