Gardens By The Bay – War of the Roses

The season of beautiful and glorious roses are now in bloom at Gardens By The Bay, engaging in a War of the Roses floral display inside the Flower Dome from 26th February 2014 to 6th April 2014, that showcases one of the world’s most popular bloom.

Titled “War of the Roses”, it is not about the roses fighting with each other. The floral display draws inspiration from an event of the same name that took place in 15th century England. The historical “War of the Roses” was a series of civil wars between the House of Lancaster and the House of York that were vying for the throne of England. Its name drew reference to the emblems associated with the two Houses – the Red Rose of Lancaster and the White Rose of York. (Source: Gardens By The Bay)

Gardens By The Bay is transformed into medieval times and visitors are brought back in time. There are two armour-plated knights on horses, amidst in a battle of roses in different shapes, sizes and colours. The “War of the Roses” floral display, which features some 60 varieties of England’s national flower, is part of the Europe leg of the “Gardens by the Bay Goes around the World” series for 2014.

During my recent visit to the Flower Dome for the War of the Roses, the floral display was really beautiful! The floral display of the various roses was bright and colourful and they will definitely catch your attention to the beautiful roses!
