.A thank you to Plantlife for listing High Beeches Garden as one of eleven gardens, in the country, to see wildflowers. The meadow is already coming into bloom with cowslips and violets. The meadow is at its peak in June.
Many of the larger flowered Rhododendrons are now in flower. Amongst them is
Rhododendron eximium. The big, fleshy flowers are tinged with pink and the large, glossy leaves, up to 30 cm long, have an orangy brown indumentum, making this a very attractive plant.
Rhododendron eximium may well be one of the garden's exhibits at the early Rhododendron Show at RHS Wisley on 12th/13th April.
