The Butchart Gardens put on a sensational floral show year-round, in some of the most magnificent landscaped gardens on the planet.

Gardeners and lovers of beauty alike will be inspired and enchanted by these gardens, first established in 1904.

Covering 22 hectares (55 acres), make your way through different garden ‘rooms’, from the dramatic sunken garden to rose-covered walkways, springtime bulbs, the summertime dahlia walk, amazing fall colors and the Japanese-inspired winter garden.

There are several restaurants within the gardens, so it’s easy to make a day of it at the Butchart Gardens.
