Leonie’s large country garden typifies everything Taranaki's reputation for gardens is built on. Her garden of abundance has flourishing rhododendrons, pieris, maples, a bog area lined with hostas, swathes of hellebores and perennials everywhere. Visitors will find a stylish summerhouse, an Oriental area with a red tori gate, native coprosma hedges, contained stone walling, and block plantings of white-trunked birches – and much more.
Leonie has created and maintained this garden over the last 30 years and seldom opens to the public. A private person, Leonie asks that you don’t take photos or videos.
