Cuba in Flower at the New York Botanical Garden

 

The Orchid Show: Cuba in Flower opened this past weekend inside the balmy Haupt Conservatory at the New York Botanical Garden. The show features thousands of colorful orchids, soaring palm trees, and a tropical retreat from the seemingly unending winter of 2010. Iconic sites in Old Havana and the Cuban countryside have been re-imagined to evoke the island’s history while engulfing visitors in radiant flowers. With the popular show acclaimed as a “tour de force that leaves most visitors gasping with amazement and delight,” The New York Botanical Garden’s 8th annual exhibition unveils a new theme, design, and experience by Cuban-born designer Jorge Sanchez of the Palm Beach firm Sanchez & Maddux. The stage is set for this season’s showcase for garden lovers, orchid fans, history buffs, and those searching for a sign that spring will return.

The Orchid Show: Cuba in Flower runs through April 11. Tickets available on the Garden’s Web site at www.nybg.org.
