Wilson Walk

Situated to the east of the Rhododendron Walk, this fascinating planting is named after the great collector, Ernest Henry Wilson. He trained at Birmingham Botanical Gardens before he travelled to the mountain provinces of China to look for plants unknown in the West. The border contains some of the many plants he found and introduced into this country. Discover the spectacular handkerchief Tree, Davidia involucrata, the Hupeh crab, Malus hupehensis, Hamamelis mollis, Magnolia wilsonii and the stately white trumpets of Lilium regale.
