"Excitement around every corner
- a true gardeners delight" C.Sanders, Hampshire
In late spring, graceful drifts of Candelabra primula add colour and finesse alongside yellow-speared ‘Skunk CabbageÙ (Lysichiton americanus) and carpets of glossy green leaves from dozens of Arum Lilies (Zantedeschia aethiopica), that produce dramatic flowers throughout summer, waiting for their moment to perform. Later on in the summer exotic Ginger lilies (Hedychiums) fill the air with breathtaking fragrances from their showy butterfly shaped blooms.
The redesigned Water Garden was opened in May 2010.
