Now Blooming in Oak Bay Native Plant Garden

This half-acre nook was first dedicated as a publicly owned native plant garden in 1939, but much of its current appearance is the result of diligent restoration done in the past 10 years by local activists. It boasts 120 native species, with many specimens rescued from building sites. April 1 showed the garden in its full glory, with fawn lilies...
