Is there a society or organization that helps to prevent plants from extinction in Malaysia?

Yes. Its called leave them alone in their own environment. Actually the fines are very heavy if you are caught taking plants, flowers, seeds, birds eggs..

Tiger orchird nursing
by: Joseph Phang

I have just found a huge bushsy plant left unattended at one of the jungle clearing activity for oil palm plantation. I was glad that the Tiger Orchird(Later I was told) was able to be transported out to my home yard. Now while applying for the permit, I am trying hard to seek for assistance to get it plant on the ground level. Can someone show me what is the perfect medium use / What are thoese important tips need special attention ? Thank you very much.

Close up of my mystery Plant

I hope this helps in finding the name of this plant. Some have suggested it could be from the Mint family. It does have a nice smell I find during watering more so.

Wild Flowers
by: Snoopy

They can be found abundantly, growing wild along the roadside in Shan State, Myanmar (Burma). To us, they make a very beautiful decoration in the garden with their blue flowers; but to the native villagers, they are just weeds. I uprooted some from the roadside and planted in my creative garden. Beautiful!

Looks like Monarda to me. I have the red and purple variety, does it come up every year?

The rose is a symbol for love, relationship, family and time of joy .Somehow there is an indication of all of these in the hound's eyes.

Enjoyed your flower & fauna pic. Seems like the hound and the rose share a similar white coloration pattern...

More Photos
by: Bernice

I'll try to get more photos this year as it grows and blooms. I'll post them as I get them.

TO BERNICE
by: Ferne, Kamloops

Hi Bernice
You are obviously a good photographer. If you would really like to know what this rose is, you could post more pictures when it is in bloom this year. It still won't be easy to I.D. for certain. There are quite a number of superficially similar roses.

How about a picture of the whole bush next time it is in bloom? One from the side of the WHOLE rose flower too?....A bud?, a half open one, and a full open one would be even better if you have the time.

With enough pictures and an idea of the size of the flowers and the size of the bush, variations in colour etc. I may be able to make a pretty good educated guess. It looks on the orange side in this picture (on my computer)....colours are such tricky things and so often show up other than as we see them. They also vary on the rose, depending on its stage of growth and even where it is being grown.

Right now, (with not enough information), I would say it looks like a dead ringer for "Glowing Peace". You will find a picture quite similar to yours at this address http://www.northlandrosarium.com (located in Spokane). Just do a search through their on-line catalogue and see what you think.

There is another picture of this same rose that just happens to grace the cover of my recently purchased 2007 soft cover edition of Ortho All About Roses. $16.95 mostl likely at your local book store.

That doesn't mean it couldn't be something completely different....more pictures please!!!

what a beauty!
by: Crys

What a great photo of this incredible rose. I love the colour of the rose and contrast on the tips of the petals - just gorgeous!
I also appreciate the photography - the crispness of the photo, the light and the shadows on the petals - great capture...you just want to put your nose up to this baby and take in the aroma.

This rose was in my yard when I moved in. It is a very old plant and it smells heavenly. I've managed to keep it alive for the past five years.

Gorgeous Rose
by: Ferne, Kamloops

Such frustration....If it will do well in Osoyoos it will probably do well in Kamloops!...I have been stewing over which rose to add to my garden this spring....and I love the colour of this one. Does it smell as good as it looks?

WOW !
by: GardenJoy

Absolutely stunning picture .. this rose is an eye popper .. fantastic job !

Rosebud to rival Citizan Kane's story ? .. not exactly , but it is a gorgeous one from my Morden Sunrise rose shrub .. timing is quick with its beautiful flowers .. buds open very fast and the moment is missed if I'm not there at the right time to catch it.

My Sweet Autumn Clematis

by CarolAnn
(Freeport, L.I., N.Y.)

This is one of my all time favs. It grows lush and rich down a driveway fence of about 50 feet. The fragrance is incredibly sweet and passersby stop on a daily basis for a little whiff!! I also have it growing up over an old tree stump and it's just beginning to head over the gate! Thanks for visiting..

Some of my garden flowers

by Jane
(Englewood, Ohio USA)

A Picture here, A Picture there

A Picture here, A Picture there

I couldn't decide which pictures to upload, so i pulled then all together into one picture.

From those astounding grandpa ott morning glories climbing the trellis to the pink knockout that was just planted this spring and the Hardy Hibiscus (i have 11 planted all over the yard) to the Purple petunia wave (wintersowed from seed) in my Ohio (5/6) garden.

I am like a kid in a toystore, running around my yard each evening looking for seed! And finding seed I do! I will be busy this winter planting the seeds in those empty milk containers and letting them sit outside to become strong, healthy plants next spring!

My goal is to completely cover my back yard in flowers.... may take a few years, but i can't wait to take that picture!

Orchid
by: Moni

Does this orchid grow wild in Malaysia? Are you allowed to pick the wild ones? It looks like a Phalenopsis(Moth orchid) from the leaf and flower...is it? The moth orchids don't need much sun or water in my growing experience in my house in the US.

Not Gallardia
by: GardenJoy

Hi there ! thank you for the comments .. this is not Gallardia , but it does look close to it ! It is an annual in my garden zone .. 5b .. it is a Gazania.
I could not find the "Oranges and Lemons" here either .. I did find Golden Goblin in gallardia but it did not bloom this year.
It is frustrating when you can't find the plants you are interested in !
Joy : )

Lemons and Oranges?

Pitcher Plant in Malaysia

Hi, I would like to share with you one of my favourite picture which I took at the Pitcher Plant garden back in my hometown, Kuching, Sarawak, Malaysia. There are about 50 or more different types of pitcher plant in the garden. And there are some orchids flower also. Looking at the different shapes of the pitcher plants really amaze and excite me. So, I couldn't stop taking photo for them.

Sizes
by: Harry

They are in different sizes and shape, some of them are longer and "slimmer" in shape, whereby this one is kind of "chubby". Generally the average size is about 5"-6" tall and 2"-3" wide. Young Pitcher Plant is packed for tourist to purchase, is about USD$5.00 only.

Pitcher Picture
by: Moni

This is a great photo. Makes me want to grow that in my garden...not likely in zone 5 of USA. Just how big is this pitcher? Does it it insects like most pitcher plants? How wonderful to get to see the different varieties of this plant.
