Water Garden

The Water Garden at Trebah is built around a natural spring that flows downhill through a series of pools, over step cascades and criss-crossed by a meandering path surrounded with lush planting.

In late spring, graceful drifts of candelabra primula add colour and finesse alongside yellow-speared 'Skunk Cabbage' (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.
