Manitoba. These display gardens prominently feature lilies donated by
the MRLS. They also include many other annual and perennial displays.

has gone into them all. Future articles are planned for the gardens in

this garden for groups and individuals are scheduled in June, July and
August. There are two types of tours, Guided Perfect Daytrip tours and
In 2006 the bulb committee donated eighty-two lily bulbs from many classifications to the Foxwarren Memory Garden. This garden is a one-achre peace symbol shaped community garden on reclaimed land in the middle of the tiny village of Foxwarren Manitoba. The garden commemorates pioneers and departed loved ones from the surrounding area with over seven hundred handcrafted stepping-stones throughout. The site is fully wheelchair accessible; features pioneer history as well as our lilies and other perennial and annual beds. This Memory Garden can be found in the center of Foxwarren, which is just off highway 16 in southwestern Manitoba. Drop in between July 15th and August 15th to see our lilies at their best or to arrange guided tours at anytime throughout the summer please call: (204) 847-2162/847-2218.
Dauphin Horticultural Society
Dauphin Horticultural Society was the recipient of the 2007 bulb donation. A total of 77 bulbs were donated and planted on the grounds of the Lorray Manor Assisted Living Apartments at 405-6th AVE.S.E. Dauphin, Manitoba. Some losses did occur in 2008 but private lily donations were planted at that time. If you would like to view these plantings during lily season stop by and take a self guided a tour.
our donation of 127 bulbs go the Carberry Garden Club for planting in a
fairly new garden in Carberry
At present no formal tours of the garden are offered but all are welcome to visit and browse the garden anytime. To view the lilies at their best July and August visits are recommended.
