Magnolia Avenue

Magnolia Avenue

In the early 1960s a group of Magnolias, mainly forms of M. x soulangeana, were planted to form an avenue running from the front of Jermyn's House to where, at that time, a large beech stood, said to have been planted in 1840. Magnolia Avenue, when in full flower in April, is one of the more magnificent sights of the Gardens. Now fully mature, these splendid old specimens are complemented throughout the year by alpines and dwarf shrubs on the scree beds around them.
