Royal Pavilion gardens

Plants to see in the flowerbeds, No 1 of 4

There's always something to look out for in the Royal Pavilion Gardens. In early Spring look out for the following:

  • Flowering almond trees
  • Fragrant daphne odora and daphne mezereon
  • Single and double flowered gorse
  • Red-flowered heath (Erica mediterranea)
  • Camellia
  • Japanese quince (chaenomeles)
  • Magnolia tripetala
  • Jews mallow (kerria japonica)

Snowdrops, primroses and winter hellebores should be in bloom at the front of shrubberies. Wild daffodils and yellow crocus are strewn over the north lawn.
