Rhododendrons are flowering bushes well-loved by gardeners around the world for their showy flowers that bloom in clusters, and run the gamut of colours from red and pink, to yellow and white.

Some of the varieties of rhododendrons to look out for are Rhododendron ‘Mount Loma Prieta’ which has striking pink flowers with apricot-yellow centres; Rhododendron ‘Meadow Lemon’, whose red-hued buds eventually become pale yellow flowers; and Rhododendron ‘Sierra Sunset’, whose bold blooms combine orange, yellow and cream tones.

These rhododendrons and azaleas were brought in from New Zealand. Due to its location in the Southern Hemisphere, New Zealand’s four seasons run counter to countries in the Northern Hemisphere, such as those in Europe and East Asia, as well as North America.

Spring in New Zealand begins in September, which is when the rhododendrons in the country’s renowned parks and gardens bloom. With perpetual spring in the climate-controlled Flower Dome, visitors to Flower Dome will get to enjoy the beautiful rhododendrons of New Zealand the same time that New Zealanders are experiencing these blooms.

Visitors will also get to see Gardens by the Bay’s bear mascots enjoying outdoor activities amidst the masses of brightly-coloured flowers. See the eight bears try their paws at camping, fishing, zip-lining and even hot air ballooning – activities reminiscent of the outdoor life in the national parks of New Zealand.
