March is a month of cherry blossoms in Singapore, filled with excitement and joy. Gardens by the Bay host the largest cherry blossom display in the city called "Sakura Matsuri Floral Display." It's hard to predict when the full bloom begins, but the first flowers usually appear in early March. The epicenter of the bloom is located in Flower Dome.

The weather-sensitive cherry trees feel the best under the dome, and delicate white and pink flowers have a chance to survive longer. “Experimental floral display” in Flower Dome features more than 20 varieties of cherry trees arranged in a Japanese-inspired setting with a tea house and rickshaws. There is also Japanese food, games, and a cultural program. Every year, new trees spread around the conservatory, such as Prunus Accolade with its simple pale flowers or a weeping sakura Prunus subhirtella Pendula. Picture-perfect flower and anime displays will be available only for a limited period of time.
