Flower & Plant Guide

A selection of popular flowers and plants throughout the peak season

NATIONAL HISTORIC SITE OF CANADA

Welcome. This simple guide is meant to answer the most common questions visitors have from touring our 55 acres of gardens. Here you will find many of the plants either commonly used in our gardens, or those attracting the most attention. Plants are arranged by predominant flower colour. Those commonly found in multiple colours are in the section with a rainbow bar. The small boxes under each photo show the commonly available colours, although they may not all be found in our gardens. Our friendly, knowledgeable staff in the PLANT IDENTIFICATION CENTRE can assist you with more in-depth information. If you cant find a plant in this guide, consider taking a digital photo and showing it to our staff. One of our 50 GARDENERS may also be able to assist you.
