Flowers & Plants @ Selangor Green Lane, Sungai Buloh


Earlier this week, I went to Sungai Buloh for an intended mission (will tell more later). If you do not know, Sungai Buloh is a haven for flowers and plants lovers. Those nurseries at Sungai Buloh used to be handled by leoprasy patients. I’m not sure about now though. And I just found out Jalan Sungai Buloh (old trunk road) where the nurseries are operating is also known as Selangor Green Lane. The operators are currently in a tussle with Yayasan Selangor. I just hope the nurseries will still be there come 20, 30 years… after all they are unique to Sungai Buloh and Selangor.

I haven’t been to that area for quite some time and due to some road changes, I ended up lost. Oh yeah, I took the Guthrie highway and then ended up in KL, Jalan Duta and then from Kepong to Sungai Buloh back. LOL To think that I used to go there a lot during my younger days… *smacks forehead* We missed the turning to Jalan Sungai Buloh at Jalan Kuala Selangor (I swear the Sungai Buloh sign were missing!) When we left Sungai Buloh, I make sure I take note of the turning so that we know the direction next time. It’s tricky. The road sign didn’t say Sungai Buloh but to some residential areas I think (best bet is Kampung Melayu Subang). Years back, we took the old Subang Airport road.

Okay enough talking. Please enjoy the photos below…
I think I have more plants than flowers photos as I was attracted to the soothing greens.

Mermaid Statue
Mermaid statue taken at a landscaping company.

Koi Fish
Beautiful Koi fishes in a pond. The mermaid sat above a stone beside the pond on the lookout for her lover. Hehe This koi photo is one of my favorite – the combination of ‘sparkling’ water wave and the koi fishes. That place was really beautiful. I saw the ‘no photography’ signage after that hence I keep my camera. I’m a good girl huh?


Magenta Hibiscus
Magenta hibiscus. This is no ordinary hibiscus.
It’s larger than my 2 hands put together. Saw this species in the nursery near my house too. When I first saw it, my lower jaw dropped to the ground. Haha

Pinkish White Hibiscus
Pinkish white ‘huge’ hibiscus.

Plants On Boat
Plants on boat. Unique. Hehe

Baby Pomelo
Baby pomelo so cute.

Plant Nursery
Ahh so relaxing!

Plant Nursery
More greens. πŸ™‚

Purple Pot
I like this purple pot and the blue one in the background and also the one on top of the blue one. Aiy ya should have bought them. Kekeke

Earthen Pots
Pots with iguanas and frogs… eekks!
Without those creatures, I will surely buy one or two home.

Pearl Grass
This is pearl grass I think. My garden used to be covered by it.

Plant Nursery
A lovely path!

Flowering Plant
I like this photo. πŸ™‚

Colorful Cactus
To think that I used to be super crazy about cactus… since none survived me, I’ve given up hope. Haha

Purple Flowers
Tiny purple flowers. This is super cute.

Magenta Flowers
I’m sure this flowering plant is very common. My question is: What is the name of this plant?

Flowers
Snapped this just before we finished our ‘business’.

What business? I’ll tell you in the next post. πŸ˜›

Here’s the location of the nurseries.
Sungai Buloh Nurseries
They are located at Jalan Sungai Buloh. Mostly are situated at the highlighted light green area in the map.

p/s: I remember there used to be a lot more nurseries. Now only a handful.

    The koi fish picture is indeed pretty. Those ceramic pots reminds me of my parents, always buys them in various sizes when we go to the nurseries.

    Lovely! I like the yellow and red koi fish, and the multi coloured cactus.

    I remember my parents used to go Sg Buloh to buy plants too, but nowadays there are a lot of nurseries that open nearby our housing area.

      Hi Kirsten, thanks! πŸ™‚
      The first 2 picts were taken at a landscaping company which I can’t remember the address. The rest of the picts were taken at Lot 43. Hope you have a great time there.

I would like to surprise my mum with the plants. I would have drop by myself if l lived nearer (have to cross an ocean to get there). Much appreciation for any info πŸ™‚

      Hi Meljoce,

    Hi there. I remembered how great it feels liked to be in nature or friend’s garden and bring that memories back home with a good piece of lens in your hand. Like your photos. I think the name of the flower you asking for is called Trailing Mediterranean Vinca (Cantharanthus Roseus.) Didnt know Sg Buluh nurseries has cullinary herbs. Which one is that? It has been ages. Thankyou again and would like to hear more of your sg buluh garden news and see more herbs photos. One day i must go there!
