It’s now only four weeks to go before Southern Suburbs Orchid Society shines with its Annual Spring Show celebrations.
It is here that you are likely to see some great examples of Coelogynes or Angel Orchids which range over more than 100 species and can be found in India, southern China, the Philippines, Vietnam and down the Malay peninsula through the Indonesian islands through Borneo and New Guinea. They are mostly found growing epiphytically on trees in their natural habitat, but some are lithophytes which grow on rocks. Pseudobulbs are always present and in some species attain large dimensions. The flowers are produced singly or in pairs of threes or in long multi-florous racemes.
To find out more about these orchids, see our Coelogynes page.
This is why we open our doors, show off our award-winning plants and help solve your most vexing questions about orchids, their culture and celebrate the fascinating world of the Orchid genus at our splendid “Orchid Show and Sales Extravaganza”.
Below is your special advance notice and invitation to our two-day event.
