Spring is in Full Bloom in Ladysmith on Vancouver Island

It's spring on Vancouver Island and that means flowers are blooming! One particular plant in the Town of Ladysmith is gaining international attention. The more-than-a-century-old shrub, locally known as “Lady Cynthia,” has been attracting international acclaim and visitors after it was listed as one of the most beautiful trees in the world by a number of online publications last year (even though it’s not technically a tree). This massive rhododendron has been blooming on the same hilltop since 1889.

For most of the year, Lady Cynthia just looks like a large, green shrub. But, for approximately two weeks in early May the rhododendron becomes a remarkable sight when it reaches full bloom. Now that it’s in full bloom again, the Town of Ladysmith, B.C., located on the east coast of Vancouver Island, is preparing for another influx of tourists.

Tourists visiting Ladysmith can also enjoy beachcombing, walking trails and the historic downtown, all of which are stunning in the spring sunshine! Residents of Ladysmith can enjoy all of this beauty and more, year-round. 

Establish your roots at the Gales in Ladysmith and plant your own spring garden with a view of the ocean. The luxury townhomes at The Gales offer spacious designs and luxury finishings. Generous balconies and patios offer sunny ocean and mountain views. Unit 17 is new a 2,600 sq. ft. 3-bedroom home currently listed for sale at $649,900.
