Hydrangea paniculata Open Day - Darley Abbey, Derbyshire - 4th August

Sunday 4th August 2019

Open day to see the National Plant Collection, Hydrangea paniculata. The Hydrangea collection is the largest in Britain and the third largest in the world. It now holds over 590 different cultivars and the collection is still growing.
 
A third of the collection can be viewed all year in the gardens near the café. The remaining part of the collection is held within a walled garden which is opened to the public between the end of July and beginning of November when the flowers are at their most flamboyant.
 
Free conducted tours at 11am and 2pm are available on the annual Open Day held in early August each year.
 
The park is owned by Derby City Council, and is beautifully landscaped. It has toilets, a children’s play area and a very nice cafe.
 
Derby City Council began the collection in 1984 and since April 2010 it has been maintained by the voluntary group Hydrangea Derby, in partnership with Derby City Council.
Event Location: The collection is housed in the gardens of Darley Abbey Park in the village of Darley Abbey just north of Derby.
