This attractive garden in Perth was once described as 'the finest two acres of private garden in the country'. Originally designed and planted by the Rentons in the early 1920s, it continues to attract gardeners and botanists from all over the world. Enjoy an outstanding collection of plants, ranging from stately trees, a rare collection of rhododendron, an array of alpines planted in the original rock gardens, terraces and troughs, herbaceous and peat-loving plants, and new introductions of snowdrop varieties, plus a unique national collection of meconopsis and autumn-flowering gentians. So much to enjoy in all seasons in a peaceful setting, accompanied by a popular Tea Room. Champion Trees: Pinus sylvestris 'Globosa' National Plant Collection: Cassiope, Meconopsis (large flowered blue spp. & cvs.) and Rhododendron (subsect. Taliense)
