The genus Angraecum comprises orchid plants, primarily epiphytic, belonging to the Orchidaceae family. These plants are native to tropical regions of Africa, islands in the Indian Ocean, and some parts of Asia.
Plants of the Angraecum genus are often recognizable for their unique and extraordinarily beautiful flowers. Many Angraecum species are notable for their characteristic tubular spur extending from the flowers. The flowers can vary in size and color depending on the species.
Many species of Angraecum are known to have a nighttime fragrance. This is an adaptation that helps attract nocturnal pollinators like moths.
