Dendrobium nobile is native across South and Southeast Asia, from the Himalayan foothills west to Thailand and Vietnam. It is the official flower of the Tibetan region of Sikkim and is considered one of the "50 fundamental herbs" in Chinese medicine. Like most epiphytic orchids it prefers to attach to tall trees, but can also be found growing on mossy cliffs and boulders.
D. nobile is one of the most popular orchids in cultivation (other than the moon orchid Phalaenopsis amabilis) and is the source of many unique cultivars and hybrids.
This illustration was done by the English artist Sarah Drake and published by renowned orchidologist John Lindley (who lent his name to the orchid Dendrobium lindleyi) in the 1838 collection "Sertum orchidaceum: a wreath of the most beautiful orchidaceous flowers".
