Lonely Planet review
Who takes 15 acres of the driest land on the island to prove it can support a flowering, 'eco-friendly' botanical garden? Octogenarian Virgil Place, that's who, and his questionable vision is marginally realized in this irrigated oasis. Expect withering heat. To get here, turn inland on Ala Kahua Dr just north of the 6-mile marker.
