Wahiawa Botanical Garden is a 27 acre tropical rain forest located on a high plateau in central Oahu. This garden is considered “The Tropical Jewel” of all of the Honolulu botanical gardens. In the early 1920’s, The Hawaii Sugar Planters Association leased the land for experimental tree planting. These trees remain today. The land was transferred to the city and county of Honolulu in 1950 and The Botanical Garden opened in 1957.
In this tropical paradise you will see plants from the following categories:
Some of these gardens include blue ginger, nutmeg, allspice, travelers palm, shaving brush, autograph tree, candle tree, elephant apple, camphor and bamboo.
