Between them, successive Dukes created state-of-the-art heated glasshouses, built by Joseph Paxton, to exhibit waves of exotic new plant introductions, including, almost 200 years ago, a collection of camellias. The original specimens have perished, but their direct descendants, together with 150 different species and cultivars continue to occupy their original, surviving Chatsworth glasshouses, including the Dukes House. There are additional specimens grown in open ground, after it was realised that most camellias are hardy .The skeletal remains of the original Camellia reticualta ‘Captain Rawes’, introduced to Britain in 1820, stand like stone statues in Flora’s Temple.
