About The Region

The British Columbia and Yukon Canadian Peony Society Region includes the greatest variation in plant hardiness zones in Canada, from 8 in the southwestern parts to 1 in the northern parts. Climate diversity is another major feature of this region, from the wettest as well as some of the driest in Canada. The climate is influenced by the Pacific Ocean and numerous mountain ranges.

B.C.’s coastal areas have mild, wet winters and temperatures rarely drop below zero. The central and interior areas have colder, snowier winters and hotter summers. The northern areas have long, cold winters and warm summers. The Yukon is one of the coldest areas in Canada. Most of the Yukon has a boreal, subarctic climate, characterized by very long, cold winters and brief warm summers with extended daylight hours. The impact of global warming has been particularly noticeable in our region in 2021.
