The Butchart Gardens

Located in Victoria, this Garden offers fifty acres of floral finery, an exquisite array of bulbs, flowering trees and shrubs as well as theme gardens from the Sunken Garden to the charming Rose Garden. Visitors are encouraged to see the blooms at their best during late afternoon (after 3pm) from mid-June through mid-September; to enjoy the flowers by daylight, stop for refreshments and some light musical entertainment, then see The Gardens again by the romantic Night Illuminations.

See website for Autumn and Christmas exhibitions, operational times and admission charges.
