More pictures from the 2019 Cornwall Garden Society spring show at Wadebridge.
Rhododendron oreodoxa (first from Werrington).
Rhododendron lukingense (second from Werrington).
Rhododendron fulvum (first from Werrington).
Rhododendron lukingense (second from Werrington)
Podocarpus matudae with ripe podocarps.
Cephalotaxus sinensis (new to me – seems very like Cephalotaxus fortunei?).
Melicytus alpinus – Roy Lancaster, the main judge, said this was an exceptional exhibit of a totally unknown genus. We have one which has never flowered above the greenhouse (or we have never seen it like this).
Cleyera japonica ‘Tricolor’ – a plant for Asia to propagate as a good coloured evergreen on the bank above the two Magnolia veitchiis.
Camellia ‘Benten’ with its silver variegation. A rather frail and insipid plant which died on us.
Tregrehan’s display of nine vases may not have won the class but it contained many new and unusual species (six pictured here).
