Your days will never be the same again with so many exciting activities at Gardens by the Bay
Winter is coming? We wish! This long, hot, dry spell in Singapore makes many of us long for the chilly temperatures and shorter days of autumn. The brilliant crimson young foliage of this red-leafed form of Thai Crepe Myrtle (Lagerstroemia floribunda) only encourages our daydreams with a pop of (false) fall colour! Native to tropical southeast Asia, this Lythraceae member can get up to 35m tall in the wild and is famous for its crinkled, tissue-thin petals that fade from magenta to white. These juvenile red leaves will likewise mature to a dark green, so enjoy them flanking Serene Garden's waterfall soon!
