The King's favourite flowers, in full bloom

More than 30 species of trees related to HM King Bhumibol’s royally initiated projects are displayed at the “Gardens Of The Father” exhibition at the Centre Court, 1st floor of Fashion Island, Ram Intra Road, from today to Nov 20.

The exhibition is the highlight of the Garden 2016 fair organised in collaboration with the Royal Forest Department, Nong Nooch Tropical Botanical Garden, in Pattaya, and Tanawasi Fern Garden.

This is an opportunity to witness the tree species HM grew and those whose names were given by the King — namely, Sritrang (Jacaranda), which he planted at Siriraj Hospital in 2011, and three other species that are the mascots of three universities in Thailand. Those three are Yung Thong (Flamboyant Tree), Nonsee (Peltophorum pterocarpum) and Kalaprapruk (Cassia bakeriana), first planted by the King at Thammasat University in 1963, Kasetsart University in 1963 and Khon Kaen University in 1967.

The annual fair also features a cactus garden set in a desert atmosphere and decorated with Moroccan architecture. The garden is filled with rarely seen cacti of various species, and succulent plants of different shapes. They include sand dollar, bishop’s cap, Ariocarpus, popeye, mistletoe cactus and queen of the night.

There are also free craft workshops showing how to tie-dye fabric using natural dyes from bark, create cactus embroidery and making soaps from natural ingredients this weekend. Up to 2,000 saplings of auspicious plants will be given away throughout.
