Coelogyne rochussenii

Necklace Orchid

Our Coelogyne rochussenii also known as 'necklace' orchid bloomed early this week.

This beautiful species is usually found growing in cooler highland areas such as in Genting Highlands and Fraser's Hill. The flowers are sweetly scented and is very attractive especially in a large clump with hanging strands of garlands usually up to 60 flowers each stalk.
