The Christchurch Botanic Gardens
Introduction When the first settlers from England arrived at Lyttleton in 1850, they brought with them the gardening traditions of that country. It was just thirteen years after the arrival that the initial plans were made to form the present Botanic Gardens. On 9 July 1863, the first tree was planted in the grounds to commemorate the marriage of Prince Albert to Princess Alexandra of Denmark. This tree, an English Oak, is regarded as the foundation date of the Government Domain, later to become the Botanic Gardens. The Gardens Control of the Botanic Gardens was until 1946 vested in the Christchurch Domains Board, but due to financial difficulties the government dissolved the Board and placed control and funding under the jurisdiction of the Christchurch City Council. Today responsibility for the management of the gardens is with the Botanical Services section of the Parks Unit. The grounds of the Botanic Gardens encompass an area of 30 hectares, the majority of this being within the loop of the Avon River. Contained within this area is undoubtedly the finest collection of exotic and indigeous plants to be found anywhere in New Zealand. There are numerous large majestic trees, many of which are in excess of 100 years, and form an interesting background to the various sections of the Gardens.

One of my required courses prior to graduation from high school included Washington State History. However, my mental recollection fails me about whether we learned much, if anything, about Washington state's flowers. Having lived in the beautiful state of Washington most of my life, I decided to do some research about how, when, and why this gorgeous rhododendron was chosen for this honor.

Home Feature Articles Bug Book Plant Gallery ... About Us Rhododendrons / Azaleas Planting Maintaining, Fertilizing, Trimming Tips Azaleas and rhododendrons are probably one of the most commonly asked for and planted landscape plants due in part to their attractive and diverse assortment of flower colors. These cherished plants are sought after by almost everyone and are always in demand, despite the fact that they are very demanding to certain growing requirements and are subject to a host of insects and diseases. Where to plant: To grow healthy, happy rhododendrons or azaleas only three basic requirements are needed. There are others, but these three are the most critical to their survival. First and foremost, proper drainage is needed. Second the situation , or site, of the plant is also a critical. The third requirement for growing these plant is proper pH The pH is not as critical as you might think, as long as it is in a range somewhere between 4.5-5.5. Actually anything below a 7.0 is acidic and anything above a 7.0 is alkaline. The majority of plants grown in home gardens can be successfully grown in a pH range of 6.0-6.5, but for azaleas and rhododendrons or any member of the Ericaceae family which also include heaths, heathers, blueberries, mt. laurel and pieris, the soil needs to be a bit more acidic in order for the macro and micro nutrients in the soil to become available to the plants. Anything out of this ideal range may cause the plant to show deficiency symptoms.

The incredible display of tresses with funnel to bell shaped flowers satiate gardeners craving for vibrant color and flamboyant flower forms mid-winter to early summer. Rhododendrons are familiar to gardeners as a ‘good spring flowering shrub for shade’ but the incredible versatility and variety of Rhododendrons seem to get overlooked. They all tend to be pest free and disease resistant so they provide much beauty with little care. There are Rhododendron varieties that grow well in shade as well as varieties for full sun, Rhododendrons that reach more than 30 feet tall and varieties that stay under 24 inches; there really is a Rhododendron for just about any location. Many varieties even have a distinctive leaf form that’s just as beautiful as the flowers to extend the plants versatility in the garden. Following is a list of cultural situations and special growth habits with a selection of Rhododendrons that work for each.

It has been built up from nothing over the past twenty years through the work of one man - Jim Reynolds. Here, in his own words, he tells how it came about : It started innocently enough. There was no grand vision of Arcadia, no hint of an all-absorbing passion, no trumpets sounded in my ear - just the heaving and thud of a piece of clay being double-dug in preparation for the reception of a dozen hybrid tea roses. This irrational urge to possess a few roses had come quite suddenly. While I had enjoyed helping to plant wallflowers and summer bedding as a child, I had during schooldays been a most reluctant gardener, baulking at the prospect of involvement with anything requiring physical exertion. By my early twenties the prospect of a little light dabbling in the garden seemed attractive enough: pruning, dead-heading and a spot of gentle weeding would not be too demanding, I thought. I soon became a garden visitor. Mount Stewart, Birr Castle and Ilnacullin - all on a suitable grand scale -were favourite destinations. In Britain, Crathes and Sissinghurst provided inspiration. My horizons began to expand quickly and I realised that even a young chap with nothing more than a dozen roses could learn an immense amount about the principles of design, layout and planting.

Tree rhododendrons
Early introductions of rhododendrons were the result of plant hunting expeditions funded by the new wealth of the industrial revolution, competing fiercely with each other to fill their conservatories with exotic horticultural curiosities. This emerging wealthy class could afford estates of the scale necessary to accommodate species impractical for the smaller suburban garden, so size was no limit. As a result, many of the hybrids bred from these earlier introductions tended also to be impractically large. One of a number of forms of Rhododendron arboreum New shoots of the giant Rhododendron sinogrande One of a number of forms of Rhododendron sinogrande With the turn of the twentieth century and the rise of the middle classes, home gardening became more popular, and the thrust turned to the breeding of compact plants with showy, colourful flowers. This trend was spurred on by the discovery of low-growing species such as the strong red prostrate

Fragrant Rhododendrons
As gardening as a passion took me in its hold, one particular group of plants began to capture my imagination, the cool climate evergreen rhododendrons. Living at the time in southern Tasmania, I was naturally drawn to the big, colourful trusses of the popular hybrids. Each spring I spent many an hour at the botanical gardens in Hobart watching and waiting as one by one these splendid plants unveiled their delights for a few short weeks before rain would come to wilt their petals. Rhododendron ciliicalyx 'Fragrantissimum' Rhododendron nuttallii Soon I realised there was much more to the vast and diverse Rhododendron genus than the showstopping garden shrubs found in every corner nursery. There are tiny, ground-hugging prostrate plants, with spiky leaves and trusses of flowers no larger than a five cent piece, that have adapted to surviving heavy frosts and winter snows of windswept rocky outcrops in the Himalayas. There are forests of trees with gigantic, leathery leaves as much as a metre in length. And there are epiphytes perching precariously in the forks of trees in the misty, mountain jungles of southeast Asia and New Guinea.

This large hills garden in a spectacular setting overlooking Piccadilly Valley was started in 1952 and first opened to the public in 1977. It features plants from the cool climates of both the northern and southern hemispheres which do not grow well on the hot, dry Adelaide plains. Formerly belonging to the Backhouse Estate, the land consists of seven intersecting valleys in a regeneration Stringy Bark ( Eucalyptus obliqua ) forest. With an altitude of 600 - 700 ft, it is ideal for the planting of particular groups of plants in each valley and has an annual rainfall of 35 - 40 inches. It also has spectacular views down the Piccadilly Valley. Part of the land had previously been used for market gardening with an aqueduct system still evident in parts of the Garden today. The original Stringy Barks had been felled to feed the ovens of Adelaide bakers or for use by the tanning trade.

Flower Gardening - Rhododendrons and azaleas Rhododendrons and azaleas – Soil conditions and planting in containers How do you like your rhododendrons? Do you like the giant forms, the medium ones perhaps, or the dwarf kinds? Attraction to plants is often linked to early associations. I personally like rhododendrons semi-wild and high above my head. But some of the smallest varieties also capture my attention. My earliest memories of rhododendrons date back to childhood. Suddenly, when walking among shrubs, I came upon tall branches of leathery-looking, large leaves, topped with magnificent flowers – the most bold and impressive blooms that I had ever seen. I set about picking a bunch to take home to my mother. The flowers of the brightest colours were few and difficult to reach. They tended to be on spindly twigs, threaded through more powerful and vigorous branches carrying mauve flowers. These were spotted in their throats with deeper markings of luscious hues. I became utterly engrossed in the flowers – they gleamed against the dark leaves, like brightly coloured foxgloves gathered on giant inflorescences. Name that Rhodon!
