The year round landscaping in Epcot is amazing with no area more impressive than the Victoria Gardens that can be found in the World Showcase Canada Pavilion. Here you will find a wide variety of blooming plants and gardens that provide a picturesque backdrop during any season.
Victoria, British Columbia is home to The Butchart Gardens, which may be one of the most beautiful botanical gardens in the world. The Butchart Gardens were started by Jennie Butchart in the exhausted limestone quarry that was used by her husband, Robert Butchart, for his cement business.
In all there are 55 acres that got their humble beginnings in that quarry over a hundred years ago. This has become a major tourist attraction in Canada and is reknowned throughout the world. The Butchart Gardens are now recognized as a National Historic Site of Canada and it is fitting that it is chosen to be included in the Epcot Canada Pavilion.
The Victoria Gardens can be found in the Canada Pavilion between the exit to O' Canada! and the walkway to get to the Le Cellier Steakhouse. The gardens provide beautiful views no matter what time of year that you visit Disney World.
The Disney World Horticultural staff has done a wonderful job constructing and maintaining these beautiful gardens. When the gardens were initially developed the plants were brought to Florida and given two years to aclimate to the Florida heat before they were put into the gardens.
