Christmas festivities, poinsettias, and more, at Seasons of Bloom, Gardens by the Bay final Flower Dome display for 2022.
Seasons of Bloom is the final Flower Dome exhibition for 2022, described in official literature as a tribute to all the flowers Gardens by the Bay has presented over the last ten years. Ongoing from now till Jan 2, 2023, the exhibition is, of course, also a festive Christmas thingy. With poinsettias, nutcracker soldiers, and illuminated Christmas trees everywhere.
“Seasons of Bloom” is also 2022’s Poinsettia Wishes, so to speak. The name change, however, doesn’t look to be permanent as Poinsettia Wishes 2023 is already listed on Gardens’ Calendar of Events.
If I’ve read the official literature correctly, this finale floral display is, instead, a one-time extravaganza that’s part of the tenth-anniversary celebrations. (Yup, Gardens by the Bay is ten-years-old!) While visiting, I get the impression too that it’s a floral and visual summary of all the Flower Dome exhibitions in 2022. (Dahlias from Dahlia Dreams, Sunflowers from Spanish Serenade, etc)
As a whole, I’d say, hmm, Seasons of Bloom is not quite as Christmas-exotic as what was displayed for 2021 and 2022; it’s tough to beat the Nordic landmark replicas from those years. But as a colourful conclusion to 2022, what’s displayed is certainly beautiful enough, and of course, appropriately festive.
While strolling past all those different blooms, I was also reminded of all the serene afternoons and evenings I’ve spent at the Flower Dome this year.

As highlighted above, Seasons of Bloom pays tribute to the flowers exhibited by Gardens by the Bay over the last ten years. And so if you’ve visited other Flower Dome exhibitions this year, you’d find many of the blooms at the “Four Seasons” walk familiar.
