Species from around the world
The adventure began in the 1980s. The botany-loving couple started collecting various species of hydrangeas which they found on trips to the UK and Ireland. In her search for rare botanical gems, Corinne travelled all over Europe and then Japan and the Americas, seeking out species in their natural habitats.
The Shamrock Collection opened to the public in 1997 and now has more than 1,500 plants from 70 different species, on 2 hectares of land. This world-renowned site has earned the National Collection and Remarkable Garden labels.
