History

Longtime lovers of daylilies, we were offered the opportunity in 2007 to purchase the hundreds of varieties that would become the basis of Island Daylily Farm, and later, Shawnigan Gardens.

Transforming the rough jewel of property since, into what is now an extensively landscaped destination garden, with terraced pathways, rock gardens, water features, and a lovely covered venue for weddings, receptions, and other functions, has been a labour of love. Our many return visitors are delighted to see the changes each year.

In 2015 we officially changed our name to Shawnigan Gardens, to better reflect the expectation of our visitor experience. We continue to grow, adding more gardens, facilities, pathways, and parking, as we experience the demand for more weddings and private functions. Our plans for 2015 include a building housing handicapped and multi-stall, mens and womens washrooms, a bridal readiness room with a change area and bridal party salon space, as well as a catering staging room.
