Iris Garden

Oh my! Love irises? Then you’ll love this amazing garden with nearly a hectare dedicated to irises such as the Bearded, Louisiana, Japanese and Siberian varieties. But that’s not all. There’s a Japanese themed garden too, with a Teagola seating area and stunning Japanese irises plus ponds with maples and magnolias. This garden has been featured in both Kiwi Gardener and NZ Gardener magazines.
