Time Out says

Gardens by the Bay's Flower Dome sees in the Year of the Tiger with a breathtaking floral display featuring 2,000 dahlias all entirely grown in-house. These beauties are showcased alongside a host of Chinese New Year floral classics like azaleas, chrysanthemums, and cymbidiums, as well as auspicious elements and symbols like the giant coin pouches and couplets to usher in new beginnings filled with good luck and positivity.

At the heart of it all, the stunning River Hongbao lantern set called Spring Fragrances takes centre stage in the flower field. The lantern set features three Chinese moon gates, a pair of rabbits and larger-than-life narcissus, peony and lily blooms. Also check out the tiger cubs that are out and about, sending greetings and well wishes to the visitors, as well as the beauty of plants and flowers depicted by the large-scale paintings of the Four Gentlemen (四君子) of Chinese culture. The plants and flowers like the plum blossom, the orchid, the bamboo, and the chrysanthemum not only represent the changing seasons, but are also analogous to virtues such as resilience, modesty, endurance, flexibility, perseverance and fortitude.
