Magnolia Kobus flowering next to our magical Aeolian harp. Designed to be played by the wind and made from an elm tree which fell in the garden during a storm.

Mixture of natural and man made wonders.

A variety of Rhododendrons are beginning to flower within the Botanics.
The Edinburgh collection is planted largely according to subsections. This gives visitors a good visual impression of the different groups, and allows rhododendron specialists to locate and compare closely-related plants easily.

Each as uniquely beautiful as the next.

Sequoiadendron giganteum. These giant redwoods were planted in 1920 and the area named John Muir grove to commemorate all he has done for forest conservation. ‪#‎JohnMuir‬‬ ‪#‎ScotSpirit‬
