Native plant communities in the Victoria Metropolitan Area vary from Garry oak parkland to majestic coniferous forests. This range of communities corresponds to a climatic gradient extending from the dry, Mediterranean climate of the southeastern coastal lowlands to the moister climate of westerly and high elevation areas. Native vegetation in British Columbia's Capital Regional District offers distinctive and attractive settings for various land uses.
