" The Garden that Love Built "
The world famous Abkhazi Garden is an exquisite heritage home and garden located in Victoria, British Columbia, a city known for its wonderful gardens. The Prince and Princess Abkhazi began creating their garden in 1946, the year they married and settled in Victoria, after living separate lives touched by privilege and tragedy. They immediately began to develop their one-acre property, and continued to maintain and improve the garden throughout their lives together.
The garden is discreet from the street, with only hints of what exists beyond the hornbeam hedge. It is blessed with dramatic glaciated rocky slopes, magnificent native Garry oaks and gorgeous vistas. The garden flows around the rock, with Japanese maples and rhododendrons which over the last 70 years have grown to an impressive maturity with carpets of heather, irises and daylilies.
