Apart from many fine specimens of betulas and sorbus Bluebell displayed so many other wonderfully interesting shrubs and trees. Here is a gallery of the photos I took of some of my other favourite specimens.
Parrotia persica ‘Jodrell Bank’ (left) and ‘Aesculus chinensis’ (right)
Parrotia persica ‘Vanessa’ (left) and ‘Liriodendron x ‘Chapel Hill’ (rt)
Prunus x ‘Catherine’
Euonymus europaeus ‘Thornhayes’
Euonymus clivicola var. rongchuensis
Metasequoia glyp ‘Matthaei Broom’ and Abies koreana ‘Silberlocke’
Gingko biloba ‘Icho’
I will finish with a special and unusual Euonymus. We were shown it by the founder and co-owner of Bluebell itself, who approached us as we wandered among the garden areas.
Euonymus alatus ‘Chicago Fire’
