"Hi Sho En", our Japanese inspired garden demonstrates a Zen-style garden (Kare San Sui) and the Kare Taki (Dry Waterfall) style garden.

(ELYSIUM is a zone 5 garden with micro-climates ranging from Zone 4-6).

  About ELYSIUM Gardens:

ELYSIUM Gardens began as a dream of Jacquie Cherot, who in 1997, along with her partner Katsumi Miyazaki, began to transform an aging apple orchard into a series of perennial gardens to display the vast variety of plants that are hardy to the semi-arid climate of the Okanagan Valley.

It is a labour of love, made possible by the very generous help of family and friends.

The gardens encompass approximately three acres with over 2000 varieties of perennials, bulbs, ornamental grasses, roses, vines, shrubs and trees. Fragrant herb and rose gardens, lush English borders, rock and scree beds, woodland gardens, xeriscape (water conserving) gardens, peony and daylily display beds are but a few of the themed gardens.

Throughout the garden there are benches under pergolas that are draped with roses and clematis where you can rest in the shade to fully enjoy the gardens.

"Hi Sho En", our Japanese inspired garden, opened in the autumn of 2002 ~ a tribute to our Japanese family and friends.

The gardens are of interest to both knowledgeable and casual gardeners and everyone who appreciates the beauty of nature. ELYSIUM Gardens are maintained organically and our gardening practices are very mindful of water conservation. We nourish the soil which in turn, nourishes the plants.
