2. Orchid And Rose Garden (O&R Garden)
As their name implies, they do have orchids on display and for sale here.
The rose garden is quite small in comparison to the previous rose garden in this list.
In addition to all their other tropical flowers, they have a myriad of hanging pitcher plants and other carnivorous plants.
You can browse through their sections – the flower garden, a forest walk and a vegetable farm.
You’ll probably notice that they keep some farm animals around like ducks and goats (in cages) too.
3. Rose Centre, Cameron Highlands
Hard to miss this place if you’re planning to stop by the Kea Farm Market.
Established since 1989, the Rose Centre is off the main road about 15 minutes’ drive from Brinchang. Visitors can walk all the way up to the top of the garden as it sits on a small hill.
At the peak, visitors will be treated to calming views of the surrounding greenery.
