Escape from winter at the Chicago Botanic Garden’s Orchid Show. This year, at our biggest flower show of the year, we’re taking a playful look at orchids and popular culture. Come see the striking Phalaenopsis ‘V3’ orchid—it’s rarely on display at botanic gardens. You also won’t want to miss the Garden’s own creations at the Orchid Show, including a 15-foot tall Vanda “wind chime” and, in a nod to the fashion world, a “gown” or two made of fresh orchids.

Keep track of your favorite orchids at the show—and then buy them at the Garden’s post-Orchid Show sale on March 30. There’s a lot to learn about orchids, whether you’re an orchid newbie or have been growing them for years. Ready to buy an orchid for your home? The Garden Shop sells several varieties and mini-orchids, vendors sell at the Orchid Marketplace on weekends, and the post-show plant sale opens to members on March 30 (general public hours are 2 to 4 p.m.).
