  • Hard by a busy main road, Branklyn garden is a haven of peace and colour. It is a small but magnificent garden with an impressive collection of rare and unusual plants. Among the most breathtaking is the Himalayan blue poppy, Meconopsis x sheldonii. There is a rock garden with purple maple and the rare golden Cedrus. This attractive garden in 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 from all over the world come to see the outstanding plants – rhododendrons, alpines, herbaceous and peat-garden plants. Branklyn also holds National Collections of Cassiope and Lilium (Mylnefield lilies), and and are working towards collections of other lilies and rhododendrons.
