The Secret Garden, One Utama – Flowering Plants

This is the fifth part in The Secret Garden series.  The Secret Garden is situated on the rooftop of One Utama Shopping Centre, one of the largest shopping malls in the world. 

Part 1:  Amazon Water Lilies 
Part 4:  White Flowers

Besides being home to Amazon water lilies, fruiting plants, vegetables, creepers, vines and white flowers, The Secret Garden is also home to a variety of flowering plants.  Some of them are relatively common in Malaysia, like the yellow canna shown above.  They were very popular when I was growing up and the local council planted plenty of yellow and red cannas along the roads. 



Flowers in various shades of purples adorned many small shrubs.

There were also beautiful blue hydrangeas blooming in the garden. 




Pink, every girly girl’s favourite colour, was on display on a variety of flowering plants.

Pale pink stripes streaked down the petals of a white, drooping lily flower.  If I’m not wrong, I believe this is a milk and white lily or pink striped trumpet lily. 


The Secret Garden is open to public on weekends and public holidays from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.  Admission is free!  

More information is available on One Utama’s Facebook page here.
