Rhododendron, Camellia and Magnolia Group

The South West Branch arranged a day at Caerhays Castle as part of the Group Centenary celebrations. Coming up the drive from the beach, the crenellated castle in its spectacular setting, within clouds of magnolia blossom never fails to inspire and whet the appetite for what is to come.

Thirty-four of us were met by owner Charles Williams with Jamie Parsons, the Head Gardener, and Mike Levett his Assistant Head Gardener; all of whom are incredibly knowledgeable especially where our three genera are concerned.

We spent a happy hour at a brisk pace, looking mainly at the massed magnolias, some of which were mere seedlings now grown into massive trees covered in blooms. Most noticeable in the morning were a pure white form of Magnolia campbellii 'Alba' and nearby, the deep purple colour of the relatively new hybrid, Magnolia 'Caerhays Splendour'.
