PHOTO OF THE DAY
9 MARCH 2010


This 'Middlemist's red' camellia, thought to be one of only two examples of the variety in the world, has bloomed at the Chiswick House Gardens conservatory. The other is in New Zealand.

Brought from China to England more than 200 years ago, it is enjoying a new lease of life thanks to the restoration of its 19th century conservatory at Chiswick House, west London, where it is being tended by head gardener Fiona Crumley.
