Vancouver
Vancouver, located in British Columbia of Canada, has many distinctive local characteristics, yet not an abundance of native plants. Keep your eyes open when you walk through the streets, gardens, and parks of Vancouver for a closer look of just what’s growing there.

Some plants in Vancouver are listed as weeds or invasive species, like English ivy and Common daisy. Be aware of these plants as you approach, as the seeds may be carried home with you through the soles of your shoes.

There are over 2,030 fruit plants in Vancouver, including Bigleaf hydrangea, Western red cedar, and Salmonberry. Although not all fruit varieties are available for human consumption, even ornamental varieties can vastly improve a city’s quality of life and provide a vital source of food for wildlife.

There are countless flowers blooming in Vancouver, decorating every corner of the city.

Spring is the time of growth and renewal of new life. Most of the flowering plants bloom during this season, with Western red cedar, Japanese maple, and Cherry laurel being the most common species of flowers in the city this time of year.

In the summer heat, Bigleaf hydrangea, China rose, and Tomato continue to provide a delightful sight for the people of Vancouver under the hot sun. In return, people in Vancouver reward these plants by taking good care of them.

In fall, crops are harvested, and beautiful leaves change color for the last time. Tomato, Garden dahlia, and English ivy also have their most notable moments at this time of year. Fall flowers like these provide late-season nectar for pollinators such as bees, butterflies, and even hummingbirds before they begin to migrate or overwinter, while fall-flowering shrubs add a delightful accent to Vancouver.

Chill in the air, winter is coming. But that doesn't mean the end of flower season entirely. There are plenty of flowers like Flaming katy, Johnny jump up, and False christmas cactus that bloom in winter in Vancouver.

In addition, we have found 273 plants that are toxic to humans, such as Golden pothos, Common foxglove, and Common yarrow in Vancouver. Toxic plants can harm people through ingestion or exposure. Therefore, you should always be careful when encountering these types of plants.
