Since 1859, orchids have been closely associated with the Singapore Botanic Gardens. The products of the Gardens' orchid breeding programme, which began in 1928, deserve a place where they can be displayed in their full splendor
The very design of these orchids is, one could say, "hand-crafted" by the Gardens, dedicated to bringing out the finest in any hybrid cross. Over 1,000 species and 2,000 hybrids are now found in the Gardens' collections, and every year, more vibrant and enduring hybrids are added on. For all to admire and enjoy their diversity, richness and beauty, the National Orchid Garden offers a permanent showcase and the largest display of orchids in the world.
