This is Singapore’s largest sunflower display ever, with more than 50 varieties and over 16,000 sunflowers on display!

Some of the rare sunflower species on display includes the “Teddy Bear” which resembles a shower sponge, and the gigantic “Russian Mammoth” that’s as big, if not bigger than, a human face.
