Video: See what flowers are in bloom at the Royal Botanical Gardens in Burlington
Despite what the song says, you don’t always have to wait for the April showers to end for the May flowers to bloom.
Right now several varieties of early bloomers are on display at the Royal Botanical Gardens (RBG) in Burlington.
For instance, lilies, hyacinths, and tulips can now be seen in full glory while trees such as magnolias and spectacular cherry blossoms can still be captured for a few more days.
Here is what the RBG has to say about this time of the year:
“At the start of April, you’re welcomed to RBG Centre by a carpet of Crocus across the Main Entrance lawn. Tips of spring bulbs can be spotted coming up throughout the display beds which is a welcome sign assuring that bloom season is right around the corner.
While strolling through Hendrie Park, keep an eye out for low blooms such as Netted Iris, Pasque Flower, and Hyacinth. For a real treat, be sure to loop through Kippax Garden to see the early spring wildflowers such as Trout Lily and Hepatica bloom.
After the spring thaw, Rock Garden‘s winding and sloped garden paths are open again to explore! Here you’ll find Witch-hazel, Winter Aconite, Rockcress, and Forsythiablooming in April. Towards the end of the month be on the look out for the first flowering cherry blossoms of the season!”
Lilies, hyacinths, and tulips – oh my! Which spring flower blooming in the Breezeway is your favourite?
