If you're yearning to see some color, you're in luck. The Missouri Botanical Garden's orchid show is in full swing. Hundreds of vibrantly hued orchids are arrayed in a natural setting inspired by the work of Brazilian landscape artist Roberto Burle Marx. Stepping into the Orthwein Floral Display Hall is akin to entering a tropical enclave. Admission to the orchid show is $5, in addition to the regular garden admission of $4 to $8. The garden is located at 4344 Shaw Boulevard (314-577-5100 or, and the show is open daily through Sunday, March 23.
Feb. 7-March 23, 9 a.m.-5 p.m., 2014
