A Rhododendron Nursery
Every plant has a story...
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.
Choose a plant from our nursery, or purchase from one of our nursery partners.
We’re open for quiet walks by appointment only between 10:00 am and 5:00 pm most days.
We are passionate about educating people in the importance of preserving endangered rhododendron species for future generations.
