Meerkerk Rhododendron Gardens

Meerkerk Rhododendron Gardens (53 acres) are nonprofit botanical gardens located at 3531 Meerkerk Lane, Greenbank, Washington. They are open daily; an admission fee is charged.

The gardens were founded by Ann and Max Meerkerk in the early 1960s on 13 acres, and served as a site where they collected and hybridized rhododendrons. They gradually expanded the garden to 10 acres of rhododendrons surrounded by an additional 43 acres of woodlands. Ann Meerkerk left the gardens to the Seattle Rhododendron Society in 1979.

Today the garden features more than 1,500 varieties of rhododendron species and hybrids.
