Dahlia Dreams 2024
 (滨海湾花园大丽花新春花卉2024), the annual floral exhibition held in conjunction with the Chinese New Year, is back at the Flower Dome, Gardens by the Bay from 19 January – 25 February 2024.

In the Year of the Dragon, Dahlia Dreams – Gardens by the Bay’s annual Chinese New Year floral display – comes to life with a grand centrepiece: a close to 7m-tall dragon that stretches over 15m in length, rising majestically amidst more than a thousand dahlias of varied shapes, sizes and colours. Part of the dragon’s scales are adorned with both cut and preserved flowers in striking yellow and red, which were painstakingly arranged by hand.

Complementing this showstopper are four colourful dragon lantern sets, each symbolising the elements of metal, water, fire, and earth. To usher in positivity for all visitors, the floral display also features a scene that interprets the Chinese saying 鱼跃龙门, which translates into “carps leap over the dragon gate”, a metaphor for courage and the pursuit of greatness. Further enhancing the dragon theme is a towering dragon sculpture made out of hardwood and recycled steel, a creation of British-born sculptor James Doran-Webb. This masterful artwork is the newest addition to his zodiac character series in Flower Dome.
