Post Tregrehan gardens 2017 (now with pictures again)
A few shots from Tregrehan gardens for your perusal

Image

Image

A greenhouse full of strange and wonderful plants!!

Image

Image

Image

Image

Digitalis sceptrum

Image

Now I know why I did not get my Lobelia gibberoa to flower I needed to go much higher.

Image

Image

Image

Loving the leaf of this Braisaiopsis below

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

The much coveted Polygonatum vietnamensis

Image

Image

Any idea's, below, I shall call this number 1

Image

This plant has grown a lot over the 3 years since our last visit answers on a post card please number 2

Image

Image

Image

I thought there maybe a few Rhodie fans in the house

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Number 3 below

Image

Image

The Rhodie seen below is R.falconerii stonefield

Image

Image

A rather large Cryptomeria japonica

Image

Image

Number 4 below

Image

Image

Another stunning Schefflera

Image

Image

Image

I caught this lovely Oreopanax out of the corner of my eye what a lovely looking plant

Image

Image

Image

Image

We were not sure what the cuts were on some of the tree's anyone?

Image

Image

R.falconerii x R.sinogrande

Image

Image

Image

Number 5

Image

Image

A few :shock: Dicksonia antartica planted on the banks of a stream

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Oreopanax echinops

Image

Image

A quite simply delicious Illicium mexicanum.....want :mrgreen:

Image

Image

Image

Image

My favourite plant at Tregrehan Dracophylum this D.arboreum from the family Ericaceae planted 10 years ago

Image

Image

Image

Image

Sadly the even larger "leaved" D.traversii a plant I lusted after 3 years ago is not looking so good.
I spoke with Tom later about this plant and he thinks maybe the loss of overhead cover from a nearby tree could have been the telling factor in its demise.

Image

My over head shot does show seeds from the recent inflorescence, I did contact Tom later to mention this, the plant has seeded a few times and attempts are being made 2 seeds I believe have germinated I was sent this picture of it in full flow

Image

It looks like D.sinclarii could do with staking

Image

Image

Image

Sonchus fruticosus a plant of which came through its first winter at our place

Image

I think this is Melianthus its not major though Number 6

Image

Image

Image

Nothofagus alessandrii planted 22 years ago

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Araucaria bidwilli

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Eriobotrya deflexa

Image

Image

Sinopanax formosanus planted 2001

Image

Hmmm that's a new one for me Pentapanax it will be interesting to see what this mature into.....try googling it see what you get. :lol:

Image

Image

Image

Image

This shiny leafed Magnolia took my eye Parakmeria lotungensis its on the critically endangered red list

Image

Image

Image

Image

Forgot my numbers I shall call this 8

Image

Image

Number 9 this looked like a very large leafed Fatsia?

Image

Image

Number 10 we cannot grow Rhodies out our place, wrong soil ph, but I still cannot be amazed and the cracking leaves this spp has.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Jackie found this lovely coloured leaf

Rhododendron griersonianum

Image

Image

Fatsia polycarpa

Image

Image

Image

Schefflera rhododendrifolia formerly known as Impressa I believe

Image

Image

Image

A rather large cork tree Quercus suber

Image

Image

I think there are a few corks left on this tree

Image

Here are the more formal gardens at the side of the greenhouses

Image

Image

Jubaea chilensis the only plant I have larger :roll:

Image

Image

Image

Some rather ancient looking Rhodies :shock:

Image

Image

A bit difficult to get a shot of the Cyathea dealbata

Image

Image

Image

Dicksonia squarrosa

Image

Image

The Xanthoceras sorbifolium planted 28 years ago was covered in lichen giving some hint as to the moist climate this garden has

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Simply says Schefflera vietnam

Image

Need more Echiums in our garden cheap as chips but my what a display "if" you can get them to flower

Image

Image

Looks like I am not the only one without flowers on my Xerenomea callistemon :lol:

Image

Image

Image

A spiny leafed Schefflera simply marked Schefflera kumal maybe the area where the seeds were harvested

Image

Image

Image

Number 11 had a bit of Impatiens look to it?

Image

Image

Image

Number 12 just said not for sale......want!

Image

Image

So we decided it was time for a nice cup of tea, after our wanderings, sat chatting with Derek Halpin and Jimi Blake a couple of guys over from Ireland admiring the Berberidopsis beckleri in the tea room when.........

Image

The owner Tom Hudson invited us for a tour of the upper garden with a few other like minded people
Tom left Bleddyn (Crug) Ben Candlin, Paul Spracklin, Derek Halpin, Neil Armstrong (Tremenheere) with the blue shirt and Jimi Blake with the flowery shirt + Jackie

Image

Image

Image

A rather unusual honeysuckle was pointed out Lonicera subequalis

Image

Magnolia nimbus was stunning!

Image

I think the Azores is now on our list of places to visit after Jackie's chat with Paul

Image

Image

Number 14

Image

Image

So a great weekend for us meeting like minded people and adding a few more treasures to our collection.
I hope you enjoy the look into one of the best if not the best garden in the UK

Firstly thank you for the extensive array of pics. I think you have done a very good job of luring me in the future. I will be perusing this thread in the cold dark winter

number 3 looks like R. sinofalconeri
number 4 possibly R. Falconeri
number 8 R. Edgworthii

What a fantastic place. I must GO :wink:

Kev.... absolutely wonderful pictures. Probably has the best Araliad display in the country. Probably 99% of plants shown will not grow in my garden :lol:

As usual with your pictorial posts - it is absolutely superb! Thank you! It's a privilege to be able to visit these Cornish gardens without the hassle of 'real' travel.

Could the bromeliad be an Ochagavia?

Brilliant photo tour Kev!

Thanks for taking the time to post these.

Can't help with many of your ID's, but No.9 looks like the large leaved form of Fatsia Polycarpa (which should be available from Mark Fillan at Tuckermarsh Plants).

Absolutely beautiful garden and very good photos. Thanks!
My botanical friends are always telling me to visit Azores, which is absolutely a botanic wonder of peace and tranquility.I hope to go before you :D :D

By the way Eduard, Azores is a paradise of antartica, medullaris and cooperi.

Now doing ID’s on this thread is getting difficult!

From what I remember;

Philesia magellanica has similar flowers to those shown, but grows on a running sub shrubby plant with individual stems seldom getting above about 30CM. I think what you had in your hand was a flower of the climbing [and closely related] Lapageria rosea.

Isoplexis canariensis isn’t what is in that picture. That picture was the Madeiran Isoplexis sceptrum, but the whole genus has been sunk back into Digitalis. That plant is now back to its original, Linnaean name; Digitalis sceptrum.

‘I think this is Melianthus its not major though Number 6’ is the Ethiopian Rosaceae; Hagenia abyssinica.

No. 9 is the large leaved form of Fatsia polycarpa from Edward Neeham, jokingly [and very incorrectly] called ‘Megafatsia macrophylla’. Mark Fillan is indeed listing it.

I would need someone else to confirm it, but ‘Number 11 had a bit of Impatiens look to it?’ might be Impatiens omeiana 'Sango'; if so it is available from Nick at Panglobal Plants.


I’m sorry my visual memory isn’t good enough to recall the other plants to start to ID them!

Chad.

Agreed, those are all the ones I remember too! The Impatiens is definitely not I. omeiana 'Sango' though. Tom's plant is very much larger. I have a plant of it but can't remember the name!

I think the Impatiens is I. balansae.

I've had problems growing mine which I aquired from Mark Fillan. Lost the main stem on mine to cold but produced side shoots which in turn get eaten by slugs or hungry Deer :roll:
