Private Garden - In the Finistère

 

I visited in Brittany, a beautiful garden, composed of 600 different varieties of camellias (counting cultivars and seedlings). The origin of the collection dates back thirty years. It is a long and pleasant walk among the camellias. We discovered some rare camellias, including 'Violet Bouquet' that we will discover a little further. Below, the camellias pathway that leads to the house.

 
Here is the first part of the garden. Subjects were still in bloom during our visit.

Now comes the second part of the garden. This collection requires a great job of maintenance and cutting. The climate is particularly favorable to camellias. They grow quickly.
