Displayed within a traditional Thai garden setting, thousands of orchids will frame the façade of a beautiful sala pavilion, a time-honored space used for shade and tranquility, complete with gabled roofline and a border of orchids. The garden’s Enid A. Haupt Conservatory will display examples of mai dat, a form of gardening that uses pruning techniques to transform trees and shrubs into whimsical forms.

After the sun goes down, visitors can experiences Orchid Evenings, where leisurely walks through the flowered paths include musical accompaniment. Related events include performances of Magical Thailand – A Journey with the Somapa Thai Dance Company on Saturdays and Sundays at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. Based in Washington, D.C., the dance company brings Thailand alive through classical and folk dances native to the country. On April 1, Orchid Talks: The Secret Lives of Orchids will present a talk by Matthew Pace, Ph.D., assistant curator, Herbarium at The New York Botanical Garden on the theme of Rotting Meat, Jewels, and Venus’ Slippers: The Orchids of Southeast Asia. Make an evening of it: Throughout the show, Thai-inspired dishes will be on offer in the garden complex at the Hudson Garden Grill and the Pine Tree Café.
