When you buy a plant at the S.F. Botanical Garden, you get something extra: status. Buying one at the garden's Lunar New Year Flower Market offers something even greater: bountiful good fortune for the coming year. Today, pick up traditional New Year celebratory flora such as quince and peach blossoms, red azaleas, citrus fruit trees, orchids, gladiolus, and camellias, then stick around for the shows throughout the day. Featured performances include the tumbling and spinning of the Red Panda Acrobats, formed in 1990 in China, and lion dancing and drumming by the S.F.based Chung Ngai Dance Troupe.
