Looking Good In February

What's looking good this month?

Around the Visitor Centre

Trebah’s collection of 500 Camellias is coming into its main flowering period. The Camellias can be found on Camellia Walk, Petry’s Path and Badger’s Walk. Camellias were not introduced to Europe until the 18th century but are now a mainstay of classic Cornish gardens.

The flowers range from pure white (eg. ‘White Swan’ & ‘Cornish Snow’) and pale pink to cerise and crimson (‘MacDonald’s Seedling’), some flecked or bicoloured (eg. ‘Lavinia Maggii’), single or double.
