Although I am not well-versed in flora and fauna, I do know how to admire a beautiful bloom. Thus, I have visited my fair share of parks and gardens wherever I travel to. One thing about these parks is that they are usually located quite far from city centre, and it could be a hassle if you are new to the place and worse, do not have your own transport.

Believe me, there are way more than these, and if you wonder if they have been correctly tagged, worry not as Dr. Francis Ng, D.Phil (Oxford) was engaged to identify them.

According to Dr. Francis, the limestone hills of Kinta Valley are home to many unique plants and they are well-represented at The Haven. What I am sharing today is just a small sample of what’s actually found at the property.

Dr. Francis also found the “Hairy Hibiscus”, still not seen elsewhere – a flowering plant so rare that its origin and identity have yet to be determined.

And then there is the endangered Langkawi cycad, believed to have been the food for dinosaurs. At The Haven, they are found clinging to steep rock faces.

Just as it is almost impossible to share all the photos of flora and fauna available at The Haven, it is similarly difficult to list out ALL the names of plants and flowers found here. There are just too many.
