Vergelegen’s Camellia garden gets international recognition
( Sapa)

Historic Vergelegen’s collection of camellias has been recognised as an international "garden of excellence" by the International Camellia Society, the estate said. The Somerset West Anglo American-owned estate collection has become one of only 17 such gardens in the world.

With the addition of Vergelegen, there were only 17 such gardens in the world, and only two in the southern hemisphere. There were over a thousand camellias in Vergelegen’s garden.
The 300-year-old Anglo American-owned estate, in Somerset West, has 18 gardens covering ten hectares.
