VanDusen Garden's laburnum walk is officially blooming now (PHOTOS)

May 19 2023, 6:00 pm

Cancel your weekend plans because the laburnum is blooming at VanDusen Botanical Garden.

Once you walk into the garden, make a left and you’ll find its stunning laburnum path. When they’re in bloom, they create a surreal canopy of yellow flowers that you can walk under like a tunnel.

Walking along the path, with purple chives and bluebells popping up from the ground and yellow blossoms dangling from above, you might feel like you’re in an episode of Bridgerton.

The blooms only last a week or two depending on the weather, said VanDusen. This year, it started to bloom around May 16 and it will just take a few days to explode into cascading yellow flowers.

You can follow the garden on Instagram for more updates, but you should get there ASAP so you can capture the trees in all their glory.

This pathway is very popular, so if you are really determined to have it (mostly) to yourself to take photos, try aiming to take your photos either right at opening or at around 4 pm for some good lighting.
