Gardens by the Bay's Rose Romance features over 16,000 roses of nearly 70 varieties.

Venue: Gardens by the Bay, Flower Dome
Dates: 2 - 30 Jun 2024
Admission: Tickets apply (check ticket pricing here)

The fifth edition of Rose Romance opens at Flower Dome and runs until 30 Jun 2024. This year's edition explores the rich cultural heritage of Türkiye, influenced by the ancient civilizations of Greece and Rome.

Nearly 70 Varieties of Roses

In addition to Damask roses, that blooms once a year, Rose Romance has also brought in the “black” roses of Türkiye. These blooms are so named because of the dark, rich hue of their velvety petals.

In addition, there are other unique roses on show, which diverge from the conventional appearance of a rose. The Rosa Sunshine Babylon Eyes is a striking variety with just five petals, yet featuring a vibrant centre of pink and yellow, that creates an illusion of a flower within a flower. On the other end of the petal spectrum, there is Rosa Leonardo da Vinci, named after the artist and which boasts of over 90 petals in a striking shade of deep pink.

The roses are complemented by flowers such as delphiniums, lavender, carnations, and petunias.

Türkiye’s Historical and Geographical Wonders

The lesser-known side of Türkiye is brought to life with detailed recreations of the country’s historical and geographical wonders. These include the Roman columns of Hierapolis, a prosperous spa town during the Hellenistic period, alongside the Antonine Fountain from Sagalassos, once a thriving city of the Roman Empire. 

There is also the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Pamukkale – which translates to “Cotton Castle” in English – a sight beyond imagination where nature causes the formation of cottony-white travertine terraces contrasted against azure spring waters.

Discover the recreated Bodrum house with its distinctive, white-washed exteriors and blue accents, a style which is emblematic of Türkiye’s Aegean coast. A traditional rose distillery setup offers a glimpse into Isparta’s rose oil production, while a perfume storefront, decorated with authentic Turkish items, brings to the display a vibrant marketplace atmosphere.

For a limited period, Rosense skincare products made from Isparta roses, will be available for the first time in Singapore at Gardens by the Bay’s retail shop.
