The New York Botanical Garden Presents, The Orchid Show: Brazilian Modern

Video Description:
Escape to a tropical paradise at The Orchid Show: Brazilian Modern, featuring beautiful displays of thousands of orchids throughout the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory.

In its 7th year, brilliantly colored orchids and the lush tropical setting of a contemporary Brazilian garden await visitors. Miami-based landscape architect Raymond Jungles has created this contemporary Brazilian garden design, inspired by his mentor, Roberto Burle Marx , an icon of Brazilian design. The design features fountains, pools, and colorful mosaics combined with graceful palms, delicate orchids, bromeliads, and other native plants of Brazil. The orchids have been selected by the Manager of the Nolen Greenhouses for Living Collections at the Botanical Garden and Curator of The Orchid Show, Marc Hachadourian and are featured throughout the Haupt Conservatory.

Beyond beauty, the show offers the chance to learn about orchids: the most diverse species of flower on earth, orchid preservation at The Garden, and ongoing research and conservation efforts by Botanical Garden scientists in Brazil. In addition, there are many educational activities including Chocolate and Vanilla Adventures in the Everett Childrens Adventure Garden, Home Gardening Demonstrations, and other exciting programming.
