Established and evolving

Nestled under the backdrop of the Lowry Peaks range, Palmside garden, is a mix of old and new. Originally planted in the 1920s you’ll see many majestic trees, including oaks, ash, lime, chestnut and an evergreen magnolia.

Since the current owners moved here in 1984 variegated elm, gleditsia, silk tree, cherry trees, maples, dogwoods and magnolias have been added to the collection, including Acer brilliantissimum and Cornus controversa Variegata – also known as the Wedding Cake tree.

Arriving at the house you’re greeted by four magnificent oak trees, and a native garden by the car park. The house entrance is more formal with box hedging and standard viburnum in one area and roses in another. Wander around the garden and discover mixed borders of trees, shrubs, roses and perennials. Also linger awhile to take in the magnificent view across the Amuri plains to the mountains beyond.
