The Flower-Lovers Guide to Amazing Seasonal Floral Events

Flower and garden lovers are a special breed. They don’t just stop to smell and explore mother nature’s bountiful gifts, they study them, grow them and will go to the ends of the earth to discover destinations that have mastered the art of cultivating them.

Amazing Lupines Garden

We recently covered the top ten amazing garden destinations every flower lover must see before they move on to the next life, but we thought we’d cull the global landscape again and assemble a seasonal guide to some of the most unique festivals, events and destinations that focus on the glorious beauty of flowers.

New York Botanical Garden Orchid Show:

 Jeff Leatham’s Kaleidoscope

Leatham is the designer of the Hotel George V, Paris, and floral designer to the stars. He has energized the 18th annual Orchid Show with his bold and colorful vision, transforming each gallery in the historic Enid A. Haupt Conservatory into a different color experience and visual effect, like the turn of a kaleidoscope. We are telling you about this early, because tickets always sell out. If you are not a member, become a member. Even if you are a member, order your tickets. If you are not a member, pull strings. Order tickets for daytime, middle of the week. All you can do right now is “sign up for ticket alerts.” Yes, it is like a rock concert for orchids.
