American ImpressionismAfter months of preparation and a frenetic few weeks in the Haupt Conservatory, where our horticulturists were buzzing about with hollyhocks, poppies, and foxgloves, opening weekend for Impressionism: American Gardens on Canvas has finally arrived. And with the mid-spring flux of wildly blooming flowers and greening trees surrounding us, it’s a pretty good time to get reacquainted with NYBG!

Join us Saturday and Sunday for the Opening Weekend Celebration, featuring live music, plein-air painting, craft activities, dance, and a special cake tasting by some of New York’s top bakeries. It’s going to be an incredible run, and the show is only just getting started.

Darwin’s orchid is one of the most reputable flowers you’ll find in the Haupt Conservatory during The Orchid Show, if only for its incredible importance to its namesake’s evolutionary predictions.

The Aquatic House in the Haupt Conservatory is an escape year round, but in winter it takes on the vibe of an oasis. Look for some of the medicinal plants featured in our Wild Medicine exhibition while you’re relaxing to the white noise of falling water.
