isabella plantation 2012 by Ann Murray

We have been told that the azaleas in Isabella Plantation are perfect. It will probably only last a couple of weeks, so be sure to get there soon if you are interested.

Here is Royal Parks description of the plantation:

“The Isabella Plantation is a beautiful woodland garden inside Richmond Park that houses a fine collection of azaleas, including the National Collection of 50 Japanese azalea varieties introduced to the West around 1920 by the famous plant collector, Ernest Wilson. Rhododendrons, camellias, and magnolias thrive under a mature woodland canopy with many other acid-loving plants.”
