|Camellia williamsii Donation|
perhaps the most beautiful camellia raised this century
There is so much to see - the garden changes everyday.
It is an extraordinary year for primroses and cowslips. There are literary carpets of primroses and there have never been so many cowslips in the meadow. It promises to be a superb year for the native wildflowers and the bluebells will be in full flower next week.
There are more Rhododenrons out every day;
Rh. niveum, Rh. sino grande, Rh. thomsonii,
Rh. Jenny, Rh. fargesii, Rh. morii, Rh. calophytum, Rh. reticulatum, Rh. Queen Wilhemina, Rh.caloxanthum, Rh. uvarifolium,
Rh Barclay Fox to name just a few.
The later flowering magnolias have survived the frost and are looking glorious. In addition to these two Magnolia stellata, Magnolia kobus, Magnolia lennei, Magnolia Star Wars and Magnolia veitchii are in full flower.
