The City of Hamilton presented the Trillium Awards for 2021. Since 1956, the city has recognized excellence in landscape design and maintenance — beautifying local neighbourhoods.

There are three levels of the Trillium Awards for residential: White, Pink and Red.

The city released a video that features some program highlights and provides a peek at some of the winning gardens this year:

At the White level, nominated gardens are judged and the top 20 scored gardens in each ward.

At the Pink level, gardens awarded with a White Trillium Award are judged and the top score in each ward.

The Red Trillium Award is the most prestigious horticultural award in Hamilton. All gardens that are awarded a Pink Trillium are judged by an appointed panel, including the chair of the Trillium Awards Committee, the Red Trillium winner from the previous year, and several experts in the field of horticulture.

Red Trillium Award winners are not eligible for any Trillium awards (white, pink or red) for five subsequent years. If the property ownership changes, the new owner must apply in writing (via the committee) to be eligible for judging before the 5-year period is finished. This policy came into effect in 2015.

The city recently introduced the Community Trillium Awards, which can be awarded to industrial, commercial, institutional, small businesses, churches, schools, community centres, apartment buildings, condominium complexes, and multi-residential properties across Hamilton.

There are up to two Community Trillium Awards presented in each Ward.

Residents can nominate their own property or other properties they feel would be worthy of being recognized with a Community Trillium Award.
