Fans of Singapore’s Gardens by the Bay should keep an eye out for the fascinating showcase of poinsettia cultivar varieties blooming this Christmas and year-end season, following the iconic attraction’s collaboration with Dümmen Orange, the world’s largest floral breeder and propagator.
“This collaboration perfectly complements Gardens by the Bay’s vision of bringing a world of gardens to Singapore for all,” shared Felix Loh, CEO of Gardens by the Bay, adding that this handshake will see the Gardens blooming with the finest flower varieties – including Poinsetta Wishes – that have yet to be introduced in Singapore and Asia Pacific.
Yeunjoo Park, president of Dümmen Orange Asia, said they are “confident that Dümmen Orange is best positioned to serve Gardens by the Bay, based on our rich crop portfolio, cutting edge breeding and global network of grower customers”.
Showcasing the world’s best in floral genetics, Singapore’s premier horticultural attraction opened on June 29, 2012 and already has a string of awards to its name, including Best Attraction Experience in the Singapore Tourism Awards 2019 and ASEAN Sustainable Tourism Award presented by ASEAN Tourism in 2018.
Over 50 million visitors have passed through its three picturesque waterfront gardens – Bay South, Bay East, and Bay Central – which cover a total of 101 hectares. Sitting in the heart of the city’s downtown Marina Bay, the national garden is home to an extensive plant collection, frequently changed floral displays, and programmes designed to engage its visitors in the world of blooms.
