Looking Good in the Garden

April 2015



The giant Rhododendron arboreum from the Himalayas are burgeoning with flowers and can be best viewed from the top of the garden on Lawn Path. These giant tree Rhododendrons have been growing at Trebah for over a hundred years.

The Magnolias play a significant role in the glory of the garden at Trebah in springtime.  Along Badger’s Walk you will find a huge specimen of Magnolia x soulangeana (H13)* in full bloom (it is one of the best and most popular Magnolias for general planting)

and also Magnolia kobus (H11)* which grows in the wild in Japan.

We have a large collection of Camellias at Trebah and they can be found along Camellia Walk, Badger’s Path and also Petry’s Path.

The Gunnera manicata, also known as Giant Rhubarb or even Elephant’s Rhubarb (F17)* is now growing rapidly and by late June the prickly stems will have grown up to approx. 3m tall and the leaves up to 2.5m across. 

At the bottom of the garden the massed planting of evergreen Azaleas have started to flower.
