Dahlia Dreams Floral Display @ Flower Dome : Year of the Monkey

Chinese New Year is just around the corner. That means there is a new Floral display at Flower Dome. This year the theme is Dahlia Dreams Floral Display, where the Dahlias from Mexico will co-mingle with Chinese tradition to bring you a new Chinese New Year flavour at the Flower Dome.
Stepping into the Flower Dome, you will be greeted by a display of Dahlia and monkeys as a backdrop. Be warned, we were there on a bright sunny day, and it was freezing cold!

Step close, and as your eyes wanders on the flower bed, you realise a distinct lack of red in the gardens. Instead, the central flower bed is transformed into a valley of green that is the homeland of Monkeys. Entirely appropriate, given that we are in the year of the Monkey.

Here are 6 highlights of Dahlia Dreams Floral Display @ Flower Dome


Dahlia takes centre stage this year. The plants native to Mexico make their appearance in the Flower Dome. They are found in various colours of red around the Flower Dome.

Take a photo with your favourite dahlia and tell Garden By the Bay why you choose it. Follow them on Instagram, upload your photo and #gardensbythe bay #dahliadreams to stand a chance to win exclusive Gardens By the Bay 2016 calendars and red packets. (Contest Close 14 Feb)

Chinese New Year decorations

The Flower Dome floral display may be darker than last year's edition, but elements of Chinese New Year are still found around the Flower Dome.

Even plants are recognised as symbols associated with Chinese New Year.

Chinese Horoscope Signs

One fun things to do is to look around for your own Horoscope around the central Flower Bed and snap a picture of it.

Monkeys in all shapes and sizes make the Flower Dome home.

Our favourite would be the majestic wooden monkeys.

The green monkeys came in a close second.

Although kids would probably fancy the plush monkeys hanging on the tree!

The Cave

Right in the middle of the Flower Bed is a walk-through the cave. Looking out at the opening, youe likely transported to some mystical icy forest.

Really... don't believe it?

Try yourself, lah!
