These days the flower industry has developed into a leading agricultural sector in Taiwan as people start to pay more attention to environmental beautification.

And in order to adapt to increasingly dense human communities, a new method of growing and display called vertical gardening has emerged.

Greenery decoration in urban areas can help economize on space if planted in a vertical direction. Renowned French botanist Patrick Blanc is famed for such innovation and has recently created two green walls in the National Theater in Taipei.
Dedicated December 11, Blanc’s brainchild ‘Orchid Waltz’ is a perfect symbol of Taiwan’s orchid industry.
” ‘Orchid Waltz’ is made up of two separate green walls: one displays Taiwan’s native species, and the other demonstrates Taiwan’s technological advances,” said Blanc.

The green wall called ‘The Butterfly Dance’ features 46 hybrid species of orchids for a total of 250 plants, along with 2,000 Adiantums. The other wall, titled ‘The Wild Dance’, utilizes 25 species of Taiwan native orchids for around 230 plants and nine other kinds of foliage plants, a total of 2,900.

As Taiwan is known as the kingdom of orchids, the idea of the green walls is ‘a homage to both orchids and people working with orchids,’ according to Blanc.

Phalaenopsis is the most popular of all orchid species. The flower’s name means “looking like a butterfly,” as its scientific name implies: in Greek, Phalaen- means ‘butterfly’, and opsis means ‘looking like’. Due to its lovely shape and colors, the Taiwanese have a special fondness for this butterfly-like flower, calling it the queen of orchids.

Rainforest Rhapsody

Named “Rainforest Rhapsody,” this 2000 sq ft garden installed at CapitaLand contains 120 plant species. The grade A office building at 6th Battery Rd, Ensemble, Singapore won the Green Mark Platinum Award in May 2010 and had this vertical garden installed by Patrick Blanc in March 2011. The Senior Minister of State for National Development and Education unveiled the garden March 24th. The total cost of the garden including design and installation was $750,000.

“There a lot of imitations in Singapore, but when they [Capitaland] saw my work they thought the imitations are a little bit different than the original work.”

This project, which he will visit on the way back from Australia, will be the fastest he’s participated in and was completed in only 4 months.

“We signed at the end of November and the project was planted in two months,” he says.

There is a great deal of concern for sustainable outcomes in Singapore, says Blanc. “They want in the future to be more and more environmental and are very much involved in sustainability.”
