On show at RhodoDirect are more than 1500 rhododendrons spread over two distinct garden areas of about one hectare that’s grown from bare ground just 23 years ago. The garden around the main house has a formal structure and you’ll see rhododendrons with a colour palette of apricots, reds and creams. The cottage garden has rhododendrons displayed in an informal setting.
While the rhododendrons are the stars of the garden, you’ll notice a selection of roses, hostas, dogwoods and deciduous azaleas. Bring a picnic and find a nice spot to enjoy your lunch, complimentary hot drinks provided.
High Tea at RhodoDirect is a fundraiser for Acland House (the Christchurch Girls High School Hostel).
Enjoy a selection of savouries and sweet treats accompanied by a selection of tea choices or plunger coffee.
