Flowers From A Horticultural Show

The annual horticultural show which was held earlier this month had a wonderful variety of orchids, bromeliads, and flowering shrubs. I was surprised to see that one nursery was also successful in growing daffodils and tulips. Not that I brought them home with me. I didn’t think they would last our summer even in bulb form!

Many species of aglaonema, bougainvillea, and poinsettias at the fair were from Thailand. Needless to say they were steeply priced. Plants that came back with me were the Polyanthus primroses, aglaonema, Christmas Cactus, African violet, a small orchid tree, and a few vincas.

To see what’s happening in other corners of the world, head over to Our World Tuesday. My thanks to the hosts of this wonderful meme.

    Hi Kanak, orchid shows are my favorites among all horticultural shows. It is our turn to have it starting in 24 Feb coupled with a conference. I don’t let these shows pass without my camera too. It is good you can grow Christmas cactus there, it doesn’t flower here in our lowlands. Let us compare the orchids exhibited in our country’s show, let’s see whose plants are healthier. haha! I wish you can see ours too for the comparison.
