An award-winning display about our National Collection of ‘Camellias and rhododendrons introduced to Heligan pre-1920' will be erected undercover on Flora's Green for garden visitors to enjoy throughout the week. Discover the fascinating stories behind Heligan's amazing collection of historic rhododendrons and camellias as they bloom majestically across the gardens and estate.

The display details the adventures of significant Victorian Plant Hunters, reveals fascinating stories of individual plants from Heligan's collection and describes how the micro-propagation project at Duchy College is helping to conserve the future of some of Heligan's horticultural treasures. In 2009 the display was awarded a Gold medal at the RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show.
