Get up close with the Baobabs in the Flower Dome! A plant that goes by several common names, this spectacular tree is also known as the Bottle Tree – a hat-tip to its peculiar-shaped trunk – and the Tree of Life, as it provides shelter, food and clothing for African savannah inhabitants. Other plants to look out for in the Flower Dome include the Drunken Tree, Ghost Tree, as well as African Baobab — the largest tree in the Gardens!
Venture into the desert without experiencing the heat and learn more about these prickly plants.
As water-storing desert plants, succulents belong to families such as Cacti, Aloes and Crassulas. Look closer and you’ll find that many of these species have sharp spines to protect themselves. A dense cover of blue or grey wax over the surface of their leaves and stems also helps protect them from dehydration and deflect excess UV light in the desert.
Travel through the deserts of Australia and see the native floral in full bloom at the Australian Garden.
In a fascinating showcase of plants Western and South Australia that thrive in a cool-dry climate, discover how different species have adapted to survive the long dry seasons, and how some plants have even come to rely on fires to aid their reproduction.
Explore a sea of colourful flowers, evergreen shrubs, succulents and bulbs as you through the South African landscape.
South Africa is home to an amazing number of exclusive or endemic species, including ‘Fynbos’ plants. These species have needle-like leaves that form thickets of fire-prone, hard-leaf shrubs that grow in sandy, low-nutrient soil. Many of the plants found in this vegetation have small, dark leaves covered in a waxy outer layer that helps them to retain moisture.
Wander through the stunning Chilean Garden and be mesmerised by exotic plants from Central Chile, such as the Monkey Puzzle Tree and the Puya from the dry rock outcrops in central Chile, and the stunning formation of large specimens of Chilean Wine Palm on the terrace.
Head up the stairs and be welcomed by the colourful ‘Chaparral’ from the Californian Mediterranean region. Comprising mostly shrubs and a few trees, these plants are affected by natural fires that occur from time to time. Some of the plants also display aromatic, downy foliage to discourage herbivores from browsing on them.
The Mediterranean Basin is one of the first places in the world to practise agriculture, with crops such as olives, figs, grapes, wheat and lentils. This garden also showcases the region’s native plants, such as the Stone Pine or Date Palm. Don’t forget to stop by the waterfront and admire the beautiful row of Italian Cypresses, which is reminiscent of Lake Como in Italy.
Olives, figs, grapes, pomegranate and many other crops are characteristic of the Mediterranean region. Grown for thousands of years, they form an important part of the region’s identity and heritage. A photo in front of the magnificent 1000-year-old Olive Tree is a must before you leave the Olive Grove.
The changing floral displays in Flower Dome reflect different seasons, festivals, and themes. From 7 October, discover the origins of the Tulip wildflower and its cultural heritage at our Tulipmania: Its Wild Origins Floral Display.
Tulipmania, one of Gardens by the Bay's most popular floral displays which had to be put on hold due to the pandemic, is finally back after a two-year hiatus since its last edition in 2019. This year, the display traces the origin of the tulip as a rare wildflower in the wilderness of Central Asia.
