Hello dear friends and readers…
From the moment I was assigned to write about our native blooms for this month’s Floral Friday theme, I’ve tried doing research about it.
And then I found this book.
First of all, I’d like to welcome you all to my country. ‘Welcome to Sarawak!’ A Borneo island.
Rafflesia – It is all known that the world’s largest flower is endemic to Borneo. The Rafflesia can be grows to the size of a large coffee table and has no leaves.
Nepenthes – Popularly known as the ‘monkey cup‘ , because it refers to the fact that monkeys have been observed drinking rainwater from these plants.
Rhododendron – The large and showy Rhododendron in Borneo is easily recognised by its distinctive foliage.
Heliconia Rostrata – Commonly known as ‘hanging lobster claw‘. Heliconia grows to about 6-8 feet tall and has spectacular bright red bracts with yellow tips.
Again, thanks to Floral Friday theme this month that I get to know our own native blooms. This is a blog hop, you can hop on to other FF participants by clicking the link.
