Private Garden - Near the Lake Maggiore, in Cannero Riviera (VB)
Overlooking the Lake Maggiore, this is a beautiful private garden with 150 varieties of camellias, japonica hybrids, sasanqua and species. We discovered there some rare Italian varieties. The garden is built on terraces. Let's discover this camellia forest.

We climb, from terrrace to terrace, to admire the camellias. In this page, I only selected Italian cultivars.

Easy to recognize, its rounded petals and its graduated pink constitute its characteristics.
