Orchids
Newfields Hours

Looking for Orchids in 2020? See these exotic beauties in full bloom as part of Spring Blooms, beginning March 20. 

For the first time ever, Orchids will be installed in the gallery spaces at the Indianapolis Museum of Art. Fresh, simple accent arrangements will bloom near sitting spaces. One focused installation will be featured on each floor, some drawing inspiration—like texture or style—from the surrounding artworks. Others will contrast. The show continues in the Madeline F. Elder Greenhouse with three dedicated spaces. One combines bonsais with Japanese orchids and features their fascinating history. The showy orchids of Asia will also be highlighted, where you’ll learn about their surprising contemporary uses. The year-round collection is still the place to see a wide range of tropical varieties. Classes will return, from basic to advanced. You’ll find the famous flowers available for purchase in the Pop-Up shop, along with accessories like special soil and free take-home care sheets.
