The Orchid Show at the New York Botanical Garden in the Bronx is one of the most anticipated shows. A fresh botanical aroma welcomes you on the paths filled with beautiful flowers.

New York Botanical Garden Hosts A Mesmerising Orchid Show

The iteration, “Natural Heritage,”  for this year’s New York Botanical Show is designed by Lily Kwong, a landscape artist. The artist took inspiration for this iteration from something that has been passed down through generations in her family. The inspiration comes from classic paintings of Chinese mountainscapes that were passed down by her family from Shanghai. It includes her own heritage, her interpretation of nature as a healing force, and her medicinal traditions. 

She has also used concepts from Chinese garden design. She said that she has learned a lot from the mysticism of orchids. People will undoubtedly be taken in by the beauty of orchids, but they will also learn more about them and their transmission. This amazing and highly anticipated show features many orchids of various colours and designs, bringing the total to 5,500.
