A Stroll Through The Orchid Show: Patrick Blanc's Vertical Gardens

March 3rd was the opening of The Orchid Show at the fabulous New York Botanical Garden and runs through April 22nd.  Orchids are one of the largest families of flowering plants, with an estimated 30,000 naturally occurring species worldwide.  The world of orchids is so vast and diverse and there are so many incredibly beautiful flowers.  It’s only fitting that orchids get their own show, now in its tenth year.  The title of this year’s event is The Orchid Show:  Patrick Blanc’s Vertical Gardens.  Blanc is world-renowned for designing his fantastic vertical gardens and how he combines thousands of orchids in this exciting show with other companion plants is just breathtaking!
