National Orchid Garden, Singapore

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.

  3. Good Morning Farida, Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment! I love having friends from different places and seeing life through THEIR eyes! Please come back! Are you in Singapore? Would love to add you to my "Friend In Every State and Beyond" goal. The orchid pictures are wonderful. Reminds me of the orchid display in the Conservatory at Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC except those are grown indoors! Have a wonderful day and thanks again for stopping by! I've become one of your followers and read many of your previous posts. I look forward to knowing you better. Sharon
