We guide you through the most picturesque posies at the New York Botanical Garden’s new exhibition. By Rebecca Dalzell

Enveloping yourself in the humid, fragrant air and riotous colors of a greenhouse in winter is like taking a trip to the tropics without the hassle of hauling to JFK. The New York Botanical Garden’s eighth annual Orchid Show transports visitors to Cuba, transforming the sprawling Victorian conservatory into lush vignettes of Old Havana and the countryside. Designed by Cuban landscape architect Jorge Sanchez, the exhibit features thousands of jaw-dropping orchids set among replicas of some of the country’s iconic buildings and statues. Many of the 300 varieties of orchids found in Cuba are displayed in the NYBG’s Soroa Orchidarium: They’re growing amid palm groves and a rustic veranda in a space modeled after one of that country’s treasured botanical gardens. We asked curator Marc Hachadourian to tell us about a few stunners.

ORCHID FEVER! New York Botanical Garden, Bronx River Pkwy at Fordham Rd, Bronx (718-817-8700, visit for hours). Sat 27–Apr 11, $8–$20.
