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 and augmented by cutting grown plants of  recognized superior forms of selected species.


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. 

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