The annual Tulipmania has returned to Gardens by the Bay - this time amidst a magical fairy tale setting in line with the garden’s storytelling theme.

Back for a third year, Tulipmania features over 75,000 bulbs from over 40 varieties, more than double that in 2014.

Visitors can expect blooms like the scarlet "Red Riding Hood", the “Purple Prince”, and the “Orange Princess” as they grace familiar fairy tale settings like Cinderella‘s carriage, Rapunzel’s tower, and the ginger bread house of Hansel and Gretel. There’s even a tulip named “Singapore”!

Tulipmania runs till May 10, from 9am to 9pm, and tickets to the Flower Dome are priced from $8 to $12.

The temperature in the Flower Dome has been lowered to 18 deg C - from the usual 25 deg C - as tulips thrive best in cool and dry conditions. With the right conditions, their lifespans can stretch up to 12 days.
