Cherry Blossoms at VanDusen

Blooming Cherry Tree at VanDusen Garden

Flower enthusiasts and photographers will not want to miss a visit to VanDusen Botanical Garden during the spring, when the cherry trees blossom. 

Throughout the Garden there are more than 100 flowering cherry trees representing 24 different species and varieties.

Many of these are featured in the Honourable David C. Lam Cherry Grove (area 4 on the map below), named in honour of British Columbia’s former Lieutenant Governor – a gardener with a life-long passion for the cherry tree.

To find a cherry tree from the list below, look for the corresponding number on the map. Bloom times are weather-dependent and vary considerably from year to year.

When to come

Cherry trees bloom from March to May, depending on the species. April is a good month to visit to see both early and late bloomers.
