Cleveland Botanical Garden celebrates one of the world’s most exotic and beautiful flowers at our annual flower show, Orchid Mania. This year Orchid Mania celebrates the natural beauty of Vietnam, and the Vietnamese culture that cherishes nature and plants. 

From the warm tropical forests and expansive coastline to rolling hills and mountains, plant diversity thrives throughout Vietnam.  Orchids grown in the region are diverse and celebrated throughout the year.  Orchid Mania explores four highlights of plant culture in Vietnam – natural areas, agriculture, food, and flowers.

Other Orchid Mania highlights include:

Fashion Meets the Botanicals
Botanically-inspired dress designs developed exclusively for the show by students from the Kent State University Fashion School.

Ask the Orchid Doctor – Saturdays from 2 – 3pm
Experts will be on hand to help with questions about growing orchids in the home. Bring in your orchid for a diagnosis.
