A place of true botanical wonderment. A boardwalk leads you down to a garden by the sea. Check it out sometime.
Lots of tree ferns. Hawaiians don't plant nearly enough of them.
This one, Angiopteris evecta, was bigger than my house.
Heliconia longissima. The pendant racemes range in length from approximately 5 to 8 feet.
Tropicals compete for light. The Garden's sheer verticality reminded me of a redwood forest.
