Alongside the cherry blossoms at the institution’s Brooklyn cousin, nothing marks approaching seasonal change as brilliantly as the New York Botanical Garden’s annual orchid show. This year’s edition takes us to Key West, with lead designer Francisca Coelho and her team doing their best work to re-create the designs of modernist landscape architect Raymond Jungles. In between the orchids — the garden’s greenhouses contain more than 6,000 — watch for poems from Florida residents Elizabeth Bishop, James Merrill, and Richard Wilbur.
Mondays-Sundays, 10 a.m. Starts: March 12. Continues through April 21, 2014
