In the Shimmer of Silk Lanterns…Look for sunlit orchids under colorful handmade parasols, listen for the trickle of water from a bamboo spout, and take in a Japanese-style dry garden surrounded by burnt cedar in shou sugi ban tradition. The Chicago Botanic Garden’s Orchid Show is an homage to the rich culture of Asia and its stunning array of native orchids.

Escape winter and unwind at the Chicago Botanic Garden! The exhibit runs until March 25 from 10AM until 4PM.
