60 Year Old Orchid’s One Week To Shine

Head to the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney this week to see a native Australian orchid in its full splendor. Dendrobium teretifolium is sometimes called the Rat’s Tail Orchid because of its long, skinny leaves. However, when it bursts into bloom, it earns another nickname, the Bridal Veil Orchid, with cascades of creamy white flowers. The Royal Botanic Garden Sydney harbors an exceptional old specimen hanging off a fig tree near its Palm House. The garden is open daily from 7:00 am to 5:30 pm during August.
