Arches of the Golden Shower

Posted on

These arches were cheerfully designed and display with massive Golden Shower Orchids.  Oncidium Goldiana is the first hybrid produced by Singapore Botanic Gardens’ orchid programme in 1939.

It has two common names, Golden Shower and Dancing Lady.

The name, Golden Shower arises from the numerous blooming in striking yellow, looking like golden showers in a mass presentation.

The name, Dancing Lady arises from individual flower that looks like dancing lady dancing in her ballroom dress.

 Anyone there would like to dance with her under the delightful arches, or just walk through and get showered by this vibrant flora?

    Beautiful photos!! These “golden arches” are so much better than the McDonald’s (hamburger chain) version. 🙂

    It looks like goldenrod until you get up close. The dancing lady orchid does look like a ballroom dancer. Lovely.
    Hey Sydney, I’m still waiting for your post on the funny “No Durians” sign, nudge, nudge.
