6 Things To Know about Tulipmania 2017 at Gardens by the Bay

Simply Inspired


Tulipmania 2017 is the fifth edition of this colourful event which takes place at Gardens by the Bay’s Flower Field. This annual flower show is a chance for us in equatorial Singapore to view the symbol of spring, multi-coloured, beautiful tulips – brought in directly from their native Holland.

Here are six things that you should know about Tulipmania 2017.

1. Tulipmania Inspired By Van Gogh

The theme of Tulipmania 2017 is Tulipmania Inspired. It takes inspiration from Vincent van Gogh, one of the most famous Dutch artists. Today, van Gogh is celebrated around the world. Sadly, in his lifetime, Vincent van Gogh was deeply troubled and considered a failure. He was plagued by mental illness and died a pauper at the young age of 37. He left behind 2,100 artworks.

2. Starry Night at Tulipmania 2017

Tulipmania Inspired - Tulipmania 2017 at Gardens by the BayThe tulip displays at the Flower Dome are inspired by van Gogh’s famous art work “The Starry Night” and his self-portrait. More than 100 varieties of tulips and hyacinths will be used as part of the floral display. This will include Darwin hybrid tulips which can bloom up to 8 cm wide. Ironically, while Vincent van Gogh did paint bulb fields, the flowers he is most often associated with are sunflowers.
