Bulbophyllum Elizabeth Ann Buckleberry

Bulbophyllum Elizabeth Ann Buckleberry

Southern Suburbs Orchid Society Club LogoHave you ever seen a flower like this before?

Would you believe this is an orchid?  Yes, this is a Bulbophyllum. Bulbophyllum’s have more than 2000 known species and is the largest genus in the orchid family. Some occur in tropical and subtropical countries around the world with the largest concentration in the Guinea areas with over 600 species to be found. Others can be found in Asia, Africa, America and Brazil. In Australia there are over 20 species and can be found in rain forest areas from northern Queensland through to the Clyde River in NSW. For further information see our Bulbophyllum page under our section on Orchid Care.

Believe it or not, in 9 weeks time members of the Southern Suburbs Orchid Society (SSOS), will be showing off their splendid Australian native and exotic orchid collections, where you may find flowering Bulbophyllums!
