About this book

A visit to one of Hawai`i's botanical gardens helps us escape the hustle and bustle of daily life, and reminds us how lucky we are to live here. These gardens are tropical Edens, with secluded gazebos, meandering streams and meditative koi ponds. In addition, they are refuges for our precious and fragile native species.

Tropical Gardens of Hawai`i beautifully showcases our state's botanical treasures, like the sprawling Hawai`i Volcanoes National Park and the culturally significant Waimea Valley. The author introduces you to smaller gardens as well; the University of Hawai`i at Manoa's Japanese Garden tucked behind the East- West Center and Maui's Kula Botanical Garden, with its breathtaking vistas and excellent examples of protea are but just of few of the lesser-known gems you'll find within these pages.
