Native Flowers of Singapore

Singapore may be hot and humid, but it is home to beautiful and unique native tropical flowers. Most of these rare species of blooms that thrive in Singapore’s environment are flowering plants. These native flowers make excellent floral arrangements that will last longer in Singapore’s tropical climate. Read on to find out what they are.


Singapore used to be home to more than 200 species of native orchids. Over time, the natural habitats of many of these species of orchids have been replaced by buildings, roads and other infrastructure. Today, it is estimated that about 60 native species can still be found growing in Singapore, mainly in the primary and secondary forests of the Central Catchment Nature Reserve. Many orchid species like the James Storie Red Orchids were also first cultivated here in Singapore.
