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 of protea are but just of few of the lesser-known gems you'll find within these pages.
