Spring is just around the corner—we promise!
As the weather warms up, Victoria’s most beautiful floral phenomenon is in bloom: pink cherry and plum blossoms flourish the streets with a vibrant wave of colour.
For those in search of their own special spot, the City of Victoria currently features an interactive map showcasing where all these trees and their dates of blossom.
For now, we’ve chosen some of our favourite spots around town to see the blooms.
From February through March, the trees are in full bloom, so don’t wait, get out there and take in this glorious sight.
Typically, you’ll find the darker blossoms blooming throughout February and March, and light pink usually bloom from April to May.
Without further ado, here’s a list compiled of our favourite cherry blossom-viewing spots in and around Victoria:
