Visiting Victoria BC in Spring
Spring time in Victoria arrives early compared to other parts of Canada. While the rest of Canada looks optimistically at Groundhog Day, in Victoria, usually by February we’re seeing the first flowers, cherry blossoms. Due to the mild climate, the grass is green throughout the year in Victoria. This greenery provides an outstanding contrast to the vivid colours of early daffodils, crocus and stunning pink and white hue of cherry and plum blossoms.
The gorgeous cherry, plum and magnolia trees bloom from approximately February to May each year. The colourful splendour of the cherry and plum trees pay tribute to the Japanese heritage, historic to Victoria. There are many places to visit and walk in Victoria to view the blossoms. In fact, the beauty would be difficult to miss anywhere you go. The flowering trees make for a relaxing spring break in Victoria BC.
