ohio_cleveland_orchidmaniaHe, Road Trips Gardeners: it’s not too late to catch “Orchid Mania” at the Cleveland Botanical Garden, 11030 East Boulevard, Cleveland, Ohio (map).

Although the show opened February 2, 2013, you can “escape to a world of tropical delights” through March 10, 2013. Hours on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Wednesdays and Fridays, 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., and Sundays, noon to 5 p.m. Tickets are $9.50 for adults, $4 for children 3 to 12 years of age, and children under 3 are free.

Orchids of every shape, color, size and scent are on display. The 10th annual “Orchid Mania” immerses you among thousands of blooms, with a wide variety of orchids from delicate “dancing ladies” to hardy “bulldogs,” which grow to be bigger than some Chihuahuas. The chocolate-scented Oncidiums are known to delight noses, and the tropical slipper orchids known as Paphiopedilum catch eyes with their distinctive palette of white, butter, chartreuse, wine, burgundy and “black.”

Don’t miss “Orchids After Dark”: special extended evening hours until 9 p.m. every Wednesday and Friday.
