Tallest Podocarpus bonsai tree
Red and Blue rocks from Niyoda, Japan
Native to Madagascar, the Bismarckias are monotypic—meaning they are the one and only species in their genus! Find these silvery-leafed palm trees at the central water feature, where they proudly fan out their singular beauty.
Podocarpus and Junipers
Take in a sense of peace admiring these elegant trees, long associated with traditional Japanese Zen gardens. Their interesting forms lend well to the art of bonsai, which is why the Junipers have been meticulously pruned by horticulture specialists to look like typical bonsai trees from Japan!
Raved as one of the most sustainable materials on earth, the Bamboo is in fact the world’s fastest growing land plant. Despite its stupendous prowess, the Bamboo is never “loud”. Feel their quiet demeanour at the Serene Garden and immerse in a sense of serenity with these discreet beauties.
Designed with your comfort in mind, the Serene Garden is generously planted with tropical trees such as Lagerstroemias and weeping-form Angsanas. Not only do these trees blend in well with the minimalist landscape, they provide the much-needed shade to keep you cool and calm.
Amidst the placid greenery, find a collection of vibrantly-coloured rocks. Naturally red, blue, and grey, these titanic gems of Nature were handpicked from Niyodo, Japan as well as Singapore’s very own Bukit Timah granite quarry.
Go with the flow and find your way to the central water feature of Serene Garden. A rivulet paved with exotic blue Niyodo rocks, its soothing sight instantly calms the mind.
