The warming influence of the Gulf Stream helps to create an exotic paradise at the south-western tip of Scotland where treasures from South and Central America, Southern Africa and Australasia rarely seen in the UK flourish in both the walled and woodland garden. Early snowdrops and daffodils make way for magnificent displays of magnolias and camellias. The Camellia Walk in the Middle Walled Garden is at its best in spring. Also stunning are Magnolia campbelli ssp. mollicomata ‘Lanarth’, with its bursts of bright pink flowers. Early flowering rhododendrons also add to the display; one of the finest is Rhododendron edgeworthii, with its spectacular combination of fine flowers, beautiful foliage and delicate fragrance. Logan has few plants that are native to the USA, but Trillium chloropetalum is surely one of the prettiest as it creates a carpet of shade-loving deep-red flowers. The Garden boasts 15 acres of exotic plantings and the carbon-neutral Logan Conservatory is home to tender plants from South Africa.
