Orchid Mania

Escape the winter chill and experience the first sight of spring at the Cleveland Botanical Garden's "Orchid Mania" exhibit.

This annual exhibit highlights the beauty of the exotic flower. Hundreds of orchids fill the atrium and dangle from the ceiling on wires.

The 1920s serves as the backdrop for this year's exhibit. Small placards are scattered throughout the building with trivia and facts about orchids and the lifestyle of the '20s.

"Orchard Mania" will be on display until March 25. The exhibit is free with admission to the Botanical Garden. Admission costs $9.50 for adults and $3 for children ages 3-12.

The Cleveland Botanical Garden is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and on Sundays from noon-5 p.m.
