Taranaki Garden Festival and Taranaki Arts Trail Official launch 15 July 2021

32. Sullivan Garden

283 Matangarara Rd, Hawera, 4672

It began as an asparagus paddock and, over 20 years, was transformed into a curvaceous garden. This Hawera beauty is plump with roses and rhododendrons (about 150) and ablaze with azaleas.

Curved paths and clipped hedges provide definition and form, while sweeping lawns frame views of Mt Taranaki. Cottage plantings, pots brimming with flowers and foliage, along with garden art, help create pictures throughout.
