SPRING colour

Spring has sprung here at Exbury Gardens, where our world famous collection of colourful rhododenrons and azaleas set it apart from other gardens. 
These stunning shrubs are at their best during April and May, lining the paths with elegant flowers. Spring also sees a spectacular display of camellias and magnolias, as well as hundreds of thousands of spring bulbs in Daffodil Meadow and the River of Gold.

When to see SPRING colour at Exbury Gardens

Spring colour is always dependent on the weather but generally we advise visiting in April and May to see the best that Exbury has to offer.  Thanks to the mild winter, flowering has started a little early this year.

‘A truly fantastic day out. My wife and I were bowled over by the amazing spring colours of rhododendrons and azaleas and there was literally colour everywhere. There are beautiful areas to walk through as well as places to sit. We took a picnic in the hope of being able to sit by one of the ponds and were not disappointed – the reflections were as spectacular as the real thing! The next thing we want to do is return in the autumn to see the colours change as it must be beautiful’
