Dahlia Dreams Floral Display At Gardens By The Bay: Part 2.
The wide range of flower types in dahlias and camellias in warm, vibrant colours at the Flower Dome is a delight and a feast for the eyes. Both varieties are very showy temperate flowers, particularly with a few exceptionally large blossoms of over six inches in diameter. In the cold climates of North America and Europe, dahlias are perennials, grown from small, brown, biennial tubers planted in the spring and reaching 4 to 5 feet tall. Their rainbow blooms range in size, from the giant 10-inch ‘dinner plate’ blooms to the 2-inch lollipop-style pompons. Though not well suited to extremely hot and humid climates, dahlias brighten up any sunny garden with a growing season that’s at least 120 days long. Camillias, the queens of the winter flowers, are attractive evergreen shrubs, that prodigiously flower for weeks from fall to spring; extending from November to April in the northern hemisphere or April to September in the southern hemisphere. There are about 250 species of camellias. The leaves of Camellia Sinensis are often processed for tea. Credit: Gardenia.
