My first visit to Trewidden Gardens, near Penzance, revealed a garden of many hidden surprises and treats. First one encounters a tree fern dell, which was actually bombed during World War Two. Many of the tree ferns were blown out of the ground, but re-established themselves where they fell.
|This Jelly Palm (Butia Capitata) is over 100 years old.|
|This Magnolia is the largest in Europe.|
|Here it is again - what a monster!|
|Trewidden has an impressive collection of Camellias.|
|I love the colour of this Azalea.|
One of my favourite areas of the garden was a little wooded dell where carpets of pink Erythroniums grow. I've not seen the pink variety growing in such profusion. This little video might give you some idea, although the flowers do appear more white than pink here!
