Plants to discover

This garden’s vocation is not to create a rare and exceptional botanical collection but some of the plants are worth a word, and below, we focus on their unique character. 

  •  Poncirus trifoliata: a citrus which resists -20°C! A twisted shrub covered with strong curved thorns and whose deciduous leaves take on a marvellous golden shade in the autumn. The fruit, which is yellow when ripe, are the size of a small mandarin with a very fragrant peel which is used in cookery: 
 
 
Poncirus Trifoliata and Arbustus Unedo or Chinese Strawberry 
 
  •  Arbustus unedo: the acid soil in this garden suits the Chinese Strawberry which is so common in Corsica. In the autumn, this maquis shrub produces ripe yellow, orange and red fruit at the same time as the small bell-like flowers which will be the following year’s fruit; 
 
  •  Feijoa sellowiana: originally from Brazil, the feijoa is also called the “pineapple guava” because it produces a ripe olive-shaped fruit in the autumn which is very rich in vitamin C and tastes of both pineapple and guava. With its very beautiful evergreen foliage, it can stand up to our winter temperatures and produces very beautiful pink flowers in June;
 
 
 
Feijoa Sellowiana
 
  •  Beautyberry (Callicarpa bodinieri): in autumn this shrub is covered with a profusion of little purple berries in clusters along its stems and gives a double show every year with very beautiful flowers in the spring; 
 
 
Callicarpa Bodinierii and Viburnum Bodnentense
 
  •  Viburnum bodnantense: if you visit the garden between April and October, this viburnum will go unnoticed as its dazzling blossom time is from November to March. When it has lost its leaves, the twigs are covered with flat-topped clusters of pink flowers which give off a strong fragrance.
