Welcome to BGCI SE Asia
Southeast Asia is a biodiversity hotspot that harbours numerous iconic species such as the giant corpse lily (the world’s tallest inflorescence), Rafflesia (the world’s largest flower), and is the center of diversity for insectivorous pitcher plants and Vireya rhododendrons. Botanic gardens have a vital role to play in conserving the unique flora of the region and in educating the public about the importance of plant diversity.
