Experience the color, beauty, and fragrance of orchids in bloom in the middle of winter. The Missouri Botanical Garden’s annual orchid show features a rotation of over 800 orchids from the Garden’s world-class collection in a lush garden of sweeping French-inspired design. Saunter past street lamps along a curved rue du jardin to a quaint faux flower shop and tiny French bistro beneath the shadow of the Eiffel Tower. C’est romantique!
