BEGONIA BRILLIANCE FLORAL DISPLAY
Some begonias are much sought after for their large and stunning flowers, and Gardens by the Bay celebrates the brilliance of begonias with its first-ever floral display showcasing more than 50 varieties with beautiful blooms in a spectrum of reds, oranges and yellows. The showy flowers – some grown by Gardens by the Bay’s horticulturists – introduce bursts of bright colour into imaginary worlds such as an undersea realm where octopuses, manta rays and giant clams reign.
