Kahanu Garden

Kahanu Garden, located on the eastern shore of the island Maui, in Hana, Hawaii, covers 464 acres and features plant collections from the Pacific Islands.  In one of the sections called the Canoe Garden, visitors can learn about the cultural relationships between the people and the plants which were brought around the Pacific on ancient canoes.  Kahanu Garden boasts the world's largest bread fruit collection.  It also has bamboo, banana, coconut, sugarcane, and vanilla.


The garden is open Monday though Saturday from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM.  Admission is $10.00 per adult.  Children 12 and under are admitted free of charge.


Quick note:  On April 12th, I will be a guest on SC Writers Blog.  I just got an agent for my book, Big Hole to China! I'll be talking about my experience with the writing and query process.  You would not believe how many queries I sent!  If you'd like to find out, please hop over!

  5. Congrats, Sherry. Didn't know about this blog,so will have to follow it. I'm a gardener who loves visiting nice gardens too.

    Best of luck with that agent and your book!

    I love the old flowers - peony, dahlia, wildflowers, and wisteria. I grow my own herbs and geraniums now, have cut way back. Trying tomatoes on the deck this year!
