The city's Magnolia trees tend to bloom in May. However, Dr. David Wees, who teaches plant science at McGill University, told us that due to Montreal's recent streak of warm weather, he suspects "most flowers will bloom at least a week earlier than usual" this year.
So where and how can you spot these beautiful flowers?
The Quebec Centre for Biodiversity Science has created an interactive digital map of all the public trees in Montreal.
The map even allows you to narrow your search by species of tree, including Magnolia, so you can treat this tool as a treasure map guiding you on your way.
Check it out here.

Pro tip: You might want to get going sooner than later!
According to an Instagram post by a spokesperson for the Botanical Garden, where the magnolias are also filling with "splendid flowers," the flowers should be in bloom until "at least next weekend."
