Botanist's Lens: Spring Sanctuary


Camellia 'Firefall'

Camellia 'Firefall'

Tree canopies, ground covers, vistas, shrubs, planters, are all filing up with color and splendor at London Town, as an early Spring arrived yesterday.

London Town's gardens are a true sanctuary in any season. Spring especially is breathtaking as the Magnolias, Camellias and many ground covers fill up the vistas again with color.

The best of the spring Camellias 'Firefall' (pictured above in bright red) is a sight to behold as are the bright ruffled large pink petals of Magnolia var. 'Eric Saville'. The star-shaped purple periwinkle is coloring the ground covers bright purple. But wait, maybe the purple Anemone in the planters is even brighter?
