Nation’s Largest Orchid Show

By Linda Tancs

In Chinese culture, the orchid has long been a symbol of refinement and nobility.  No doubt its beauty and enchanting nature is reason enough why orchid cultivation has blossomed into an international industry.  In the United States, the largest orchid exhibition is taking place through 22 April at the New York Botanical Garden’s Orchid Show.  The curated show sports a mother lode of exotic orchids in every shape, size and color imaginable.  Of course, there will be orchids for sale, along with care demonstrations, mood music and cocktail evenings among the blooms.
