Celebrating Canada's 150th Anniversary in 2017 with 1,000 tulips! 


We are happy to say that the Calgary Horticultural Society's Demonstration and Teaching Garden recieved a donation of 1,000 'Canada 150' tulip bulbs this fall. All were planted in October by volunteers in and around the garden. The tulip will be white with red flames and bears a striking resemblance to our Maple Leaf flag.

During sesquicentennial celebrations in spring 2017, 300,000 Canada 150 tulips will be showcased in Ottawa flower beds, and thousands more will bloom in community gardens accross Canada.
