Shamrock Garden

On a splendid site overlooking the Ango plateau, the French national hydrangea collection in Varengeville sur Mer contains over 1.500 different varieties (species and cultivars). The largest collection of its kind in the world, SHAMROCK presents the saga of the Hydrangea genus, with discoveries by great explorers in the furthest confines of the globe (Asia, USA, Latin America,…) as well as the development of garden varieties that have been created by breeders from France, Germany, Switzerland, England, Holland, USA, Japan and elsewhere for over 100 years. A living museum of hydrangeas, the collection offers sublime garden scenes from June to September to the delight of garden lovers, painters and photographers. The mazes formed by the successive pathways and flower beds are the delight of children, who love searching for the « green dragon ». It is lovely to sit and contemplate the hydrangeas on a hot summer’s day from one of the many benches, in the pleasant shade of the tall Paulownia trees.
