The Cleveland Botanical Garden is displaying over 1500 orchid plants representing over 100 varieties in their halls and glasshouses for the 2019 edition of Orchid Mania, now through Sun 3/10. According to Glasshouse Manager and gardener Mark Bir, over 100,000 new varieties of orchids are created each and every year. Labels and signage explain how and why these colorful and fragrant blooms attract insects and appeal to the eye.
In a compelling collaboration with Kent State University, the exhibit “Fashion Meets The Botanicals” features 13 dresses that KSU fashion students have designed and displayed with live flowers. Orchid Mania features a special exhibition by Cleveland artist Gunter Schwegler, whose paintings on silk feature the beautiful blooms.
Special programs include Orchids After Dark, with the CBG staying open till 9PM every Wednesday featuring Ask The Orchid Doctor at 6PM (bring your sick plants!) and a special Orchid Tour at 7PM.
