    Dragonflies and Damselflies


    The small side streams, slow-flowing waters and naturalised riverbanks at Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park make it an ideal home for many dragonflies. The Common Bluetail is the first damselfly to colonise the Park's riverbanks; while the Yellow Tailed Ashy Shimmers is spotted perching in high areas to prey on mosquitoes, flies and other insects. 


    Other dragonflies that frequent the Park: The Common Scarlet, Variable Wisp, Yellow-Striped Flutterer, Common Parasol, Blue Percher

    Wildflowers


    Wildflowers are also a staple at Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park. The Townsville Stylo (Stylosansthes humilis) functions as groundcover to help reduce soil erosion while the dark reddish-purple Sessile Joyweed (Alternanthera sessilis 'Red'), which grows easily along the river banks, helps to add a dash of colour to the green landscape.

    Other wildflowers that can be found in the Park: Wild Maracuja, Bladder Cherry, SwampTea Tree, Seashore Mangosteen, Kangkong, Climbing Dayweed
