Kula Botanical Garden

sights / Parks & gardens

Lonely Planet review

Pleasantly overgrown and shady, this mature garden has walking paths that wind through acres of theme plantings, including native Hawaiian specimens and a ‘taboo garden’ of poisonous plants. Because a stream runs through it, the garden supports water-thirsty plants that you won’t find in other Kula gardens. When the rain gods have been generous the whole place is an explosion of color.
