Themed plant collections
Wakehurst's themed plant collections include four National Collections and beds planted to represent different threatened habitats.
Outside the entrance to the Wellcome Trust Millennium Building are eight raised beds planted to represent different threatened habitats.
Wakehurst's skimmias are found throughout the ornamental gardens.
The name 'pinetum' is given to a collection of conifers.
The gardens at Wakehurst Place are home to National Collections of Skimmia, Hypericum, Eucryphia, Betula and Nothofagus.
