|About||The Pukeiti Rhododendron Trust has supported the conservation and growth of the magical, magnificent Pukeiti garden since 1951.|
In 1951 the Pukeiti Rhododendron Trust Inc. established the Pukeiti garden on the slopes of Mt Taranaki in New Zealand. A Garden of National Significance, Pukeiti today holds the largest collection of rhododendrons in the Southern Hemisphere, and is the only garden in the world where rhododendrons grow in a rainforest setting.
Now owned by the Taranaki Regional Council, the PRT continues to: work with the TRC to conserve and grow this unique plant collection; support the global conservation of species rhododendron; raise national and international awareness of the garden; and increase community involvement with this treasured local amenity.
