The Butchart Chronicles : September 12, 2013

Flower report for September 12 2013

The summer floral display is still looking great, but we felt that it was still important to further enhance the colourful display by planting thousands of chrysanthemums to carry the colour into the fall. The perennial borders are bursting with colour and the Rose Garden will continue to produce colour as long as the weather stays sunny and warm. However, stealing the show for the next couple of weeks will be our incredible Dahlia border which is unrivaled in its colour and beauty.
