Fondé en 1931, ce jardin est l'œuvre du frère Marie-Victorin, botaniste de grand renom qui a amorcé et mené projet d'envergure, et de Henry Teuscher, architecte paysagiste qui en a conçu l'aménagement. La beauté, la variété et la richesse de ses collections témoignent de la vision de ses fondateurs, qui voulaient en faire un « jardin botanique idéal » par ses fonctions esthétiques, scientifiques, éducatives et sociales. Avec ses quelque 22 000 espèces et cultivars de plantes, ses grandes serres d'exposition, sa trentaine de jardins thématiques et son vaste arboretum, il est l'un des plus importants jardins botaniques au monde.

Founded in 1931, this garden is the work of renowned botanist Brother Marie-Victorin, who initiated and directed the project, and landscape architect Henry Teuscher, who conceived the design. The beauty, diversity, and the design of its collections reflect the founders' vision of the "ideal botanical garden," in terms of its aesthetic qualities, and its scientific, educational, and social functions. With its 22,000 plant species and cultivars, large exhibition greenhouses, thirty thematic gardens, it is one of the most important botanical gardens in the world.
