With tulips and flowers of ancient memory, the protagonists will be the arboreal azaleas and rhododendrons, ubiquitous on Isola Madre, in very different varieties that here have found the ideal habitat and that cover the spaces with corollas, wherever they look. While the large bushes of lilac and the first perfumed wisteria will make the air full of wonderful essences. Joining the camellias, then giving way to roses, queens of Isola Bella but present in rich varieties in all three gardens of the Paradis of the Borromeo.

From 28 March 2012, Locarno
Locarno Camelie, the most important European exhibition dedicated to the Camellia, returns from 28 March 2012 with hundreds of varieties exhibited in the Camellia Park in Locarno.
The magic is renewed for the 15th edition of an increasingly popular and important exhibition The magic is renewed: from March 28 to April 1, 2012 Locarno returns to be the queen of the camellias. For the fifteenth consecutive year, the famous Swiss town on Lake Maggiore is home to "Locarno Camelie", one of the world's largest exhibitions dedicated to camellia: an exhibition that attracts specialists and enthusiasts from all over the world and that last year exceeded for the first time the threshold of 10,000 visitors coming especially from Switzerland and Italy. Locarno is by far the Swiss region where the passion for camellia has found the most fertile soil for over 100 years. Favored by a mild and sunny climate, the town on Lake Maggiore hosts numerous plants of subtropical origins in its public and private gardens. Among these, the camellia, present in large numbers, has achieved a very significant place. The headquarters of the Swiss Camellia Society, Locarno hosted the World Congress of the International Camellia Society (ICS) in 2005 and on that occasion it was equipped with a Camellia Park which was gradually expanded to become the largest of its kind in Europe. The structure covers an area of over 10,000 square meters and welcomes a thousand varieties of plants, planted between ponds and romantic gravel-covered paths. The structure has become an attraction for enthusiasts from all over the world and was included last year in the prestigious and exclusive list of "Garden of Excellence" set up by the International Camelia Society, the highest global instance in terms of camellias. Beautifully located by the lake, the Camellia Park gives its best during the "Locarno Camelie" period, and could therefore only become the natural venue for the event. The Locarno event is distinguished by similar manifestations for its size, the wide variety of plants and flowers on display, the extreme care taken in the arrangements, the profusion of floral decorations and the possibility offered to the visitor to admire on the spot hundreds of cut flowers together with a large number of flowering plants in the natural context of a park. As always, the focus of the event is the scientific exhibition, set up in the large pavilion built at the entrance to the park.
