Plas Newydd Arboretum & Rhododendron
In the atmospheric Arboretum, a canopy of Chilean beeches and aromatic eucalypts shelter many unusual plants from the southern hemisphere. The secluded and peaceful Rhododendron Garden was planted in the 1930s with specimens recently introduced to the UK by plant hunters. It was then expanded by the 7th Marquess in the 1940s with wedding gifts of rhododendrons from Lord Aberconway at Bodnant. Alongside these venerable specimens you'll find also some stunning magnolias. The Rhododendron's are in bloom now and will be followed by the Azaleas towards the end of the month and into May.
The gardens are open but visits need to be booked, see https://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/plas-newydd-house-and-garden
