A Lovely Morning At The Singapore National Orchid Garden

A few weeks ago, I had the chance to tour the Singapore National Orchid Garden – many thanks to Jasmine from Clarins for organizing this trip. Our main purpose was, of course, to witness the bloom of the Renanthera Clarins Christian & Olivier.

Here are some of the pictures I have taken during this short trip, hope you enjoy them.‏

Singapore Natural Orchid Garden has the largest display of tropical orchids in the world.

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 splendour.

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 Garden’s collection and every year, more vibrant and enduring hybrids are added on.

For all o 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.

Perhaps it is the balmy atmosphere of a secluded tropical garden.. or the splendour of the sweeping floralscape or the wide spectrum of every orchid hue..

..whatever is personally enchanting, you will come to find it at the Natural Orchid Garden.

A myriad of orchid blooms meets the eye here: stunning or subtle, patterned or unadorned, intricate or simple.

Thank you for reading, happy Sunday.
