This weeks floral display

Added 6 yearss ago

 Visitors to Trebah will notice the arrival of an enormous picture board behind the ticket desk and this week I have created a small floral display that echoes some of the colours in the photo.  The Rhododendron is ‘Glory of Penjerrick’, a fine old tree-like variety bred by the head gardener at nearby Penjerrick in 1903; the deep strawberry red flowers fade to pink in March and April.  Equally vivid and begging to be seen is Azalea ‘Hino Crimson’ which grows on the Azalea bank near Mallard Pond.  Its dazzling bright crimson flowers appear in late spring and can be viewed  right across the garden from Healeys Hill. Thirdly, I have chosen Camellia ‘Leonard Messell’ a hybrid of C.reticulata and C.x williamsii, with semi-double clear rose pink flowers with darker pink veining.  This gorgeous Camellia has a long flowering period and an upright large vigorous habit.  (for this flower arrangement see this week’s photo of the week on this website)
