Moycale Garden, Liskeard - the azalea Rhododendron augustinii forms a blue waterfall between Pieris formosa 'Wakehurst' and the earlier flowering Pieris japonica. (azalea Rhododendron augustinii Pieris formosa 'Wakehurst' Pieris japonica  Rhododendron 'Winsome'  Camellia campsii 'alba'  Camellia saluensis)

This area of the Moyclare Cornish Garden, Liskeard, was planted in 1953 and is home to a particularly striking lipstick-pink coloured Rhododendron 'Winsome' and many fine camellias such as the rareish white Camellia campsii 'alba' (now propagated by and available from The Duchy of Cornwall Nurseries). Also of note is the bright pink Camellia saluensis from the Salween River Valley in West Yunnnan in China.
