Owner description: The only public garden of its kind in North America, the Roger-Van den Hende Garden showcases nearly 4,000 species and cultivars arranged by botanical family. The herbacetum, the beating heart of the garden, holds many secrets to be discovered by curious observers and budding botanists. No matter where you look-from the water garden to the broad pergola providing shade to 40-year-old rhododendrons-this vibrant site never ceases to amaze. Quebec's native flora along with North American, Asian and European plants will take you away in an enchanting landscape like no other. Set off from the garden is a demonstration and trial bed for annual plants of all shapes and colours.

Nothing, but nothing to make a detour for here. It's nothing at all like the Jardin botanique de Montreal. Not very well maintained, but they do have an interesting way of laying out the perennials isolated in rows. I'm sure Mr. Van den Hende would be turning in his grave if he could see the state of the garden. It's a shame. They should charge a few bucks to hire some gardeners to do some weeding and maintenance. The benches are starting to fall apart, so watch where you sit!
