Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Okay, so this isn’t a clover—of any-leafed variety. But it is one of the premier sights to be found during tomorrow night’s Orchid Evening, which you can think of as an extension of St. Patty’s Day thanks to the cocktails on hand. Keep an eye out for Darwin’s famed star orchid when you visit. You might even be able to make out the feature that made this bloom such an evolutionary puzzle for decades on end.
