Lily Garden

This garden is devoted primarily to the genus Lilium and demonstrates different varieties of asiatic hybrids, trumpet hybrids, and oriental lilies, in a wide range of sizes and colours. It includes lily cultivars from all divisions and many species are represented, many hundreds of bulbs in total.

Companion plants include many other genera, including a wide variety of Iris and other perennials, to provide interest year round.

May-August is the peak bloom period, the garden then being magnificent with dramatic blooms, luscious scents and exuberant growth typical of Lilium.

Another highlight of the garden is the mimosa tree Albizia julibrissin
