Antony Woodland Garden is one of only five International Camellia Gardens of Excellence in the United Kingdom and has one of the foremost collections in the world. Mainly collected in West Down Valley, the riot of colour the Camellias produce each spring is simply breathtaking.
Antony Woodland Garden also contains the National Collection of Camellia Japonica. Over 2,500 camellias are recorded on a plant database with detailed descriptions, which include accession number, source, planting dates and individual photographs. Every single plant is independently mapped.
As camellias are evergreen shrubs they add a welcome splash of colour to the garden during winter and are usually renowned for being the first flowering shrub in late winter / early spring.
