A rare and historic collection of colourful blooms return to display for free at Chiswick House and Gardens.
Images by Nick Feilding give just a glimpse of some of the treasured Cameliias at the Grade I listed Conservatory in Chiswick .
Doors opened on Friday (March 3), and the opening weekend will host 33 different varieties of pinks, reds, whites and striped, among them the unique Middlemist's red - one of two in the world to exist.
It was originally brought from China in 1804 by Londoner John Middlemist, a nurseryman from Shepherds Bush.
This year there will also be free Camellia Show Garden Tours on Wednesday at 11am and Sundays at midday (except March 19).
Volunteer guides will take visitors through the historic back sheds on a 45 minute tour to discover all about the history of the gardens, the beautiful Camellia collection, and the Conservatory.
Enthusiasts will also have the chance to buy a choice of heritage varieties from the House's original collection, with all monies raised in aid of the preservation of Grade I listed gardens.
The month-long show will run until April 2, 2017.
Opening hours are Tuesday to Sunday from 10am to 4pm.
Admission is free.
