11. Pukemara

5 Tyne Pl

Alan has created a town garden of two parts— a flat courtyard and a hillside garden. The courtyard garden around the house features sub-tropical vireyas rhododendrons combined with fuchsias, roses and perennials. The hillside garden at the rear has surprises around every corner of the zigzag path, especially colourful rhododendrons, fiery azaleas, mature trees, viburnums and hydrangeas. Pukemara is also a haven for hostas. You’ll find a large selection of these lush leafy plants on show and for sale along with other plant varieties. Pukemara featured in the New Zealand Gardener magazine 2019.
