Charity Garden Opening - Inveraray Castle Gardens
The castle gardens are a blaze of yellows with varieties of narcissus in the spring, followed by bluebells in May. Rhododendrons and azaleas abound and flower from April to June and the newly restored rose garden is a mass of pinks in late June and July. Very fine specimens of _Cedrus deodara_, _Sequoiadendron giganteum_ (Wellingtonia), _Cryptomeria japonica_, _Taxus baccata_ and others thrive in the damp climate. The Flag-Borders on each side of the main drive with paths in the shape of Scotland's national flag, the St Andrew's Cross, are outstanding in spring with _Prunus_ 'Ukon' and _P. subhirtella_ and are underplanted with rhododendrons, eucryphias, shrubs and herbaceous plants giving interest all year.
This is a fundraising event for the open garden charity Scotland’s Gardens Scheme which raises money for hundreds of local charities.
