Orchids also have a long history in Singapore and Gardens by the Bay also has an extensive collection of orchids and its own orchid hybridisation programme.

The first display at Orchid Haven is Flight of the Moth Orchid, a tribute to the Phalaenopsis orchid. This orchid is popular amongst orchid breeders for producing innovative new hybrids.

Gardens by the Bay’s CEO Felix Loh said, “My kudos to our team of horticulturists for working painstakingly to keep Gardens by the Bay going despite the challenges thrown up by the pandemic. Our latest creation Orchid Haven is a way for our horticulturists to pay tribute to the nation on its 56th birthday, and amidst the current setback, the Flight of the Moth Orchid display expresses our confidence that Singapore will soar again in our battle against the pandemic.”
