8 Flowery Spots Around Montreal To Have Your Next Colourful Photoshoot

Doesn't it feel like the city totally blooms in the summer? Not only does it seem like Montrealers finally emerge after the winter, but the flora and the fauna do so also. This is why we sought out some flowery around in Montreal for you to check out this summer, whether it be for new Instagram content or just to add a little colour to your day.

Whether you love roses, tulips, lilies or any other type of flower, all flowers are nature's wonders of how something so simple can bring such joy.

Can you be-leaf it?

And the most amazing part is that because we know they won't last forever, they get us to get out there and enjoy the beautiful weather while we can.

Trust me, these spots are so breathtaking, you'll want to snap some pics to show your friends just how magical they really are.

So to help you to see some colour to your life and to your feeds, I thought I'd help plant the seed and find some of the most amazing places near Montreal where you can see some breathtaking flowers.

Botanical Gardens

Address: 4101, rue Sherbrooke E., Montreal, QC

With over 190 acres, ten themed greenhouses and 30 themed gardens, your photo-ops will blossom and grow just like the flowers all around you.


Atwater Market

Address: 138, ave. Atwater, Montreal, QC

Atwater Market is definitely one of the most popular markets in the city, but it's also a great spot for a floral photoshoot. Plus, you can buy these gorgeous arrangements to bring home.


Jean-Talon Market

Address: 7070, ave. Henri Julien, Montreal, QC

Another fantastic market on the island, the Jean-Talon market not only has yummy-looking local food but breathtakingly beautiful flowers.


Bleu Lavande

Address: 891, Chemin Narrows, Stanstead, QC

Less than two hours from Montreal in the Eastern Townships is Bleu Lavende, a beautiful lavender farm where you can buy lavender-infused products, have a picnic and take some amazing pics.


Parc Jean Drapeau

Not only are the flowers here spectacular, but you get a view of the city to give you even more places for an impromptu photoshoot.


Jardins Michel Corbeil

Address: 961, blvd. Arthur-Sauvé, Saint-Eustache, QC

This gorgeous spot is less than an hour away from Montreal, making it the ideal spot when you need a quick escape to your floral happy place.


Jardins du Domaine Howard

Address: 1350, blvd. de Portland, Sherbrooke, QC

Parc du Domaine-Howard is about an hour and a half from the city, but is definitely worth the trip! It's got beautiful arrangements and tulips galore, making it the most beautiful (and best-smelling) day trip.


Les Jardins du Grand-Portage

Address: 800, Chemin du Portage, Saint-Didace, QC

Les Jardins du Grand-Portage opens on July 11, but it's so worth the wait. For $15, you can explore the serene greenery and the Zen garden. And take a pic or two, of course.


Which do you "pic" first?
