Stunning Eucryphia now in bloom
Our beautiful Eucryphia Tree is currently in full bloom and not to be missed. You can find it on the left hand side of the old drive.
The five species of small trees in the genus eucryphia are native to Chile, Tasmania and south-east Australia. Their native habitats are temperate rainforest but they grow well in the UK and are fully hardy or frost hardy.
Eucryphia’s evergreen foliage and cup-shaped fragrant white flowers appear in late summer and autumn, when few other plants are flowering.
