2/27: Orchid Mania opens at Botanical Garden

Posted By on Wed, Feb 24, 2010 at 4:03 PM

One of the true signs of spring is the frenzy of activity by orchid fanciers, as societies across the area mount their annual shows. The Cleveland Botanical Garden (11030 East Blvd., 216.721.1600) kicks off the season with its month-long flower orgy Orchid Mania 2010, which opens today and runs through March 28. The Garden’s lobby and Eleanor Armstrong Smith Glasshouse will be packed with colorful, exotic and often erotic blooms; special activities, including a vendor sale March 6-7 and tips from experts on orchid growing, will take place throughout the month. Photographers are also invited to try their hand at capturing the sumptuous beauty of these tropical plants and submit them to the Orchid Mania photo contest. Orchid Mania is free with garden admission: adults $7.50, kids 3-12 $3. Hours: 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays, noon-5 p.m. Sundays. — Anastasia Pantsios
