Tiger Orchid

Tiger Orchid (Grammatophyllum speciosum)
Native of Sumatra, Malaysia, Philippines and Polynesia
Long as I can remember, this Tiger Orchid plant has been in our Botanic Gardens but I have only seen the flowers two or three times. I consider myself lucky to be able to see these flowers because they make a magnificent sight. I am not a fan of orchids but the Tiger Orchid stands out for its size and presence.
