UBC Botanical Garden

Canada's oldest university botanic garden, UBC Botanical Garden was established in 1916 under the directorship of John Davidson, British Columbia's first provincial botanist. The original mission of the Garden was research into the native flora of British Columbia.

Over the past century, the mission of UBC Botanical Garden has broadened to include research, conservation, teaching and public display of temperate plants from around the world, particularly Asian, alpine and native plants.


The UBC Centre for Plant Research is the research arm of the UBC Botanical Garden. With world-class research on topics including plant adaptation, evolution, genomics, plant physiology and biotic interactions, phytochemistry, plant biotechnology and plant breeding the University of British Columbia's reputation consistently ranks as one of the leading research institutions in North America.
