|Visiting RareFind Nursery
We Love To Show Off Our Bloomers!
RareFind Nursery's 11 acres are centered around a 4 acre display garden in a natural wooded setting, home to a large and diverse collection of hardy rhododendrons, shrubs, trees, and perennials. It also contains many seedlings from our own hybridizing efforts.
Peak rhododendron bloom season lasts from May 1 to June 1, but something is usually blooming from about April 1 into August. Picnic tables are available, so pack a lunch and make a day trip. We are available for group visits and can accommodate buses. Please call ahead for group visits so we can provide the attention you deserve.
HOW TO GET HERE (It's Easy)
We are within 12 miles of the New Jersey Turnpike or 20 miles of the Garden State Parkway. Please use our directions in the catalog. (DO NOT use Mapquest or a GPS as the directions may be wrong at the very end!)
If your traveling companions do not share your passion for plants, the Jersey Shore, Six Flags Great Adventure amusement park, and a very large outlet mall are right down the road from us as alternate entertainment choices.
WE ARE OPEN TO VISITORS 3 DAYS A WEEK:
From March through November, we are open to the public Thursday through Saturday from 10 am to 4 pm.
WE ARE NOT OPEN ON SUNDAY.
We are NOT OPEN TO THE PUBLIC on MONDAYS, TUESDAYS AND WEDNESDAYS during the months of March, April and May as we are especially busy with shipping. During other times of the year, please call us, and we will do our best to accommodate you.
