Dahlia Dreams at Gardens by the Bay

Feb 18, 2024



Embark on a majestic journey at Gardens by the Bay's annual Chinese New Year floral display, Dahlia Dreams, celebrating the Year of the Dragon.

A towering 7-meter dragon, adorned with over a thousand dahlias in vibrant colors, steals the spotlight. The dragon's scales, meticulously arranged with cut and preserved flowers, showcase an exquisite blend of yellow and red.

Complementing this centerpiece are four dragon lantern sets representing metal, water, fire, and earth elements. The floral display also interprets the Chinese saying "鱼跃龙门" (“carps leap over the dragon gate”), symbolizing courage and the pursuit of greatness. Artist James Doran-Webb's hardwood and steel dragon sculpture adds an extra touch to Flower Dome, capturing the essence of the dragon in Chinese culture.

To welcome the Year of the Wood Dragon, witness the awe-inspiring driftwood sculpture titled "The Bearer of Infinite Blessings." Standing at 5.5 meters, this creation celebrates growth, progress, and abundance, crafted through 9,000 hours of dedication using recycled stainless steel and hardwood.
