Spring in New Zealand begins in September, which is when the rhododendrons in the country’s renowned parks and gardens bloom. With perpetual spring in the climate-controlled Flower Dome, visitors to Flower Dome will get to enjoy the beautiful rhododendrons of New Zealand the same time that New Zealanders are experiencing these blooms.
