Branklyn Garden

Set on the side of Kinnoull Hill overlooking Perth. Branklyn Garden’s two acres holds an impressive collection of rare and unusual plants.

This attractive garden, a haven of peace within walking distance of Perth, was developed by John and Dorothy Renton with the help of seed collections from plant hunters such as Forrest, Ludlow and Sherriff.

Gardeners and botanists come from all over the world to Branklyn Garden to see the outstanding collection of plants, particularly rhododendrons, alpines, herbaceous and peat-garden plants.

Branklyn Garden also holds the National Collection of the striking and unusual vivid blue Himalayan poppy, Meconopsis. Other National Collections here are Cassiope and Rhododendron taliense.

For more information on seasonal flowers in the garden please visit the website and go to the specific “garden page”.
