Vacay.ca Recommends Vancouver Island for Butchart Gardens
When you’re finished enjoying the beauty of Clayoquot Wilderness Resort, drive or catch a flight from Tofino to Victoria and see the beauty of Butchart Gardens. Located in Brentwood Bay just north of Victoria, Butchart Gardens isa favourite for people all over the world. Vacay.ca Senior Writer Kathleen Kenna visited this legendary garden and had this to say:
Kenna: “Butchart Gardens, opened in 1908, is one of those national treasures Canadians can be smug about — gardens, how old school — yet 1 million visitors pass through its gates every year.
Visitors can grab a free, 24-page Flower and Plant Guide with photos and growing tips on everything in the gardens. For novices, there are surprises like white Nicotiana (tobacco plant), orange Lilium (Turkscap Lily), Helenium (Sneezeweed), pink-purple Dierama (Angel’s Fishing Rod) and red Amaranthus (Love-Lies-Bleeding). Flowers such as Whirligig Daisy, Himalayan Blue Poppy, and Painted Tongue are a surprise in shape and colour.”
