“Begonia Brilliance” Floral Display
Fri May 25 - Sun Jul 1 @ 9:00 am - 9:00 pmAdmission charge to the Flower Dome applies.
At Gardens by the Bay’s first-ever “Begonia Brilliance” floral display, visitors enter a specially-constructed dome brimming with more than 600 begonias in shades of red, pink, orange and yellow.
Among these begonia flowers are unusually large ones grown in-house by Gardens by the Bay’s Research and Horticulture team. Most flowering begonias produce blooms about 5cm in diameter, but the ones cultivated by the Gardens have blooms that measure between 13cm and 16cm across.
Gardens by the Bay is growing about 5,000 of these large begonias to showcase throughout the floral display. Visitors can see 14 flowering begonia varieties cultivated to have supersized blooms, such as Begonia Prima Donna Blush, which produces flowers with pale pink petals that are rimmed with a darker pink, and Begonia Trumpet Orange, which boasts of bright orange flowers.
These gorgeous begonia blooms are complemented by other varieties of flowering begonias from Europe and Malaysia. In all, more than 20,000 begonia plants of more than 50 varieties have been brought in for the floral display.
