Participants on this exclusive Curator's Tour will learn valuable information about the selection and maintenance of Camellias, Magnolias and Rhododendrons. Learn about these enthralling cool-climate flowering plants and experience their stunning diversity first-hand in Mount Lofty Botanic Garden's iconic gullies. In a field study, led by Mount Lofty Botanic Garden's Horticultural Supervisor and flowering shrub expert Robert Hatcher, you'll learn about growing conditions and evergreen and deciduous varieties. Experience the Rhododendron Gully - boasting one of Australia's best rhododendron collections - which contains at least 150 species (several threatened in the wild). There are a further 40 species of Camellias and similar number of Magnolia/Magnoliaceae represented at the Garden's wildly popular Magnolia and South East Asian Gullies. Book your tickets online via Eventbrite or by calling.
