The Orchid Show: Patrick Blanc’s Vertical Gardens.
The vertical gardens of French botanist and artist Patrick Blanc–featuring structures covered in orchids, ferns, exotic plants, and epiphytes freed from the constraints of gravity–transform the historic Enid A. Haupt Conservatory into an exotic spectacle to dazzle the senses in The Orchid Show: Patrick Blanc’s Vertical Gardens. Blanc’s vertical gardens are world-renowned for their cutting edge approach to horticulture. After years of travelling around the world as a professional botanist observing how plants grow in their natural habitats, Blanc pioneered a cutting-edge approach to vertical gardens that is celebrated by horticultural and design communities alike. Learn more about Patrick Blanc, his exciting gardening techniques, and about the fascinating world of orchids through a series of lectures, tours, demonstrations, and public programs.
