Dahlia Dreams (大丽花之梦)

Stroll through a Chinese garden blooming with colourful dahlias as the popular “Dahlia Dreams” floral display at Gardens by the Bay returns once again to usher in a brand new year. Amidst a scenic landscape dotted with elegant pavilions, rotating water wheels, and a majestic 40-metre-long archway of red lanterns, take time to admire the spectacular dahlias – some with blooms as large as one’s face – along with other festive and auspicious plants like narcissus, cymbidium and chrysanthemum.

Keep your eyes peeled for the exquisite Senrinzaki or “Thousand Blooms” chrysanthemum arrangements, which have been painstakingly cultivated over a period of at least one year to present the magnificent display of 500 to 1,500 flowers blooming from a single plant.

To celebrate the Year of the Pig, delightful sculptures of the animal can also be spotted in Gardens by the Bay’s first floral display of 2019.
