The Butchart Chronicles : October 17, 2013

Flower Report for October 16 2013

The colours of the garden are clearly telling us we are nearing the peak of the fall display. With clear, sunny weather predicted for the next week we are looking to further enhance the intensity of the already brilliant fall foliage colours. Thousands of colourful Chrysanthemums enhance the beauty of the garden and will help extend the show of colour through this month. The Dahlia border remains incredibly colourful and is imposing in its stature with some plants reaching heights of over 3 meters!
