Wonderful wildflowers at Glendurgan
Each spring at Glendurgan, hoards of wildflowers flood the garden's banks and paths in an impressive display of colour.
As spring slowly makes an appearance at Glendurgan primroses and violets appear under the trees and delicately line the paths and borders. These are interspersed shortly after by a mixture of jewel coloured aquilegias and wild orchids which rapdily sweep throughout the valley as spring progresses.
Perfect woodland conditions provide the ideal habitat for bluebells to thrive, with each year's display more impressive than the last. Alongside bluebells and other wildflowers are imposing rhododendrons with their dramatic large flowers and vibrant display of colour.
Interspersed throughout the garden are stretches of wild garlic with its distinctive aroma and clusters of delicate wood anemone. Towards the end of spring and heading into summer, gladioli make a statement appearance on the steep bank above the maze, towering over other wildflowers with a display of bright pink flowers.
