Do you know where the world’s largest orchid garden is? It is located at Singapore. Last year, over 60,000 plants bloomed inside this garden known as the Singapore’s National Orchid Garden. It has an extensive collection that includes 600 newly created hybrid species. Interestingly Singapore’s national flower, the Papilionanthe “Miss Joaquim,” is a mix of two species, Vanda Hookeriana and V. teres, which was hybridized in the 1890s by an Armenian horticulturalist, Agnes Joaquim, living in Singapore then. More than 200 of the garden’s orchid hybrids are named for foreign dignitaries and heads of state.
