ORCHID FLOWER BOMB
Over the past few years, the New York Botanical Garden’s annual Orchid Show has been an occasion to commission new work from French designer Patrick Blanc, celebrate the biodiversity of Cuba, and give Broadway set designers the chance to try their hand at botany. This year, however, the show is more modest, shifting its focus to the flowers themselves, arranged throughout the conservatory and culminating with the always splendid exhibition hall. They’re hard to miss, but keep your eye out for the Darwin’s Star orchids arranged along the final walkway, and the special Hurricane Sandy memorial to the garden’s nearly 300 trees destroyed by the storm.
