The Rhododendron Species Garden

Beautifully situated on 22 acres, the Rhododendron Species Garden houses one of the largest collections of species rhododendrons in the world. The garden is joined by many other species of plants with growing conditions similar to rhododendrons. Those include Japanese Maples, Pacific Northwest native trees, and many rare plants. Regarded as “One of the best and most beautiful places on the West Coast to see autumn foliage.”
The garden is also host to the Pacific Bonsai Museum. It is one of only two
