A Rhododendron Nursery

Every plant has a story...

What a crazy spring. We have lots of plants in bloom right now. Some of them are late and should have bloomed before now. Others are a month or two ahead of themselves! We would love to have you visit and see for yourselves. We are happy to sell to the public and offer a wider selection of special rhodies not always available elsewhere.

As always, you are welcome to come to the nursery to have the best choice. Although we can't keep 9 - 5 hours seven days a week, we are usually here and glad if you phone us   (206-383-2713)  to let us know you want to visit and/or pick out a plant or two.

Chimacum Woods is a rhododendron garden and nursery located on eighteen acres of Washington state's Olympic Peninsula.

Founded and managed by Robert Zimmermann and Beth Orling, we offer a large variety of species rhododendrons for sale—including many rare and unusual types—all grown from seed as much as possible for the sake of biodiversity. We augment this selection with a variety of cutting-grown plants taken from recognized superior forms of selected species.

Most of all, we are passionate about sharing, educating, enjoying, and preserving endangered species rhododendrons for future generations.


We  welcome the public to make appointments to walk in our quiet woodland garden. Whether alone or in small family groups, our peaceful setting and fresh air will foster health in mind, body, and spirit.
