Cooktown Orchid or its scientific name is Dendrobium phalaenopsis comes from the family of Orchidaceae. The botanic name is still in debate today. Last 1959, it was proclaimed as the floral emblem of Queensland. It is easily cultivated in the native land of Queensland. It was first collected by Dr Thomson. It was named by a botanist named John Lindley. It is commonly found in trees and branches.
The plant can grow up to 80 centimeters in height. It can bare lilac, purple, or rarely white flowers which grow 10 to 40 centimeters long. When cultivated, it can produce flowers all year long. But if it is grown in the wild, it may only produce flowers during summer.
