In commemorating the centennial celebrations in the year 2010, the Singapore Scout Association has adopted a unique Orchid hybrid, and named it the Dendrobium Singapore Scouts. The Dendrobium Singapore Scouts is lime green in colour, which is the blend between selective colors extracted from the classic (khaki) and current (olive green) scout uniform colour. The blended colour signifies recognition of Singapore Scouts’ past contributions, and also their present and future endeavour. Apart from its representative colour, the Dendrobium Singapore Scouts is a productive Orchid plant which is vigorous and free flowering. It is also fragrant! With sufficient nourishment and sunlight, the flowers are long lasting and the sprays of flowers bloom all year round.
The Dendrobium Singapore Scouts was registered on the 20th Jan 2010 and officially unveiled during the 100th Year Anniversary Dinner on 27th Feb 2010 at Suntec International Convention & Exhibition Centre. The Dendrobium Singapore Scouts’ unveiling ceremony was graced by Guest of Honour, Senior Minister Goh Chok Tong, who was a Scout during his former years as a student.

If you desire to visit and purchase directly from our nursery, kindly remember to bring along your Scout membership card for exclusive discount entitlement to the Dendrobium Singapore Scouts & other potted Orchid varieties.
In line with the centennial celebrations, the Singapore Scout Association have a few major events lined up this year for Scouts and their families to get together. For those who have missed the anniversary dinner, look out for the next event, the ‘Centenary Scout Rally’ on the 22nd May 2010 (Saturday) at Hwa Chong Institution.
