More from Singapore Botanic Gardens

Jan-Marie took so many amazing picture from her visit to Singapore Botanic Gardens that I couldn’t possibly fit them into one post. I’ll start with more Vandas and Dendrobiums.

These warm growers epitomize the word orchid. With the largest display of tropical orchids in the world, Singapore Botanic Gardens has been a pioneer in orchid breeding for decades. These Wilsonara, Dendrobium, Oncidium and Vanda photos show examples of their hybridization programs.

Many of the orchids in these photos are hybrids that are bred to be hardy, as long as they receive good basic care. The first picture in this set shows a hybrid Dendrobium aptly nicknamed an “Antelope Dendrobium.” Besides their corkscrew petals, most Antelope Dendrobiums have a rich fragrance. The final picture shows a tunnel with thousands of yellow Oncidium flowers, surely a tropical paradise.
