Queen Lili'uokalani, Hawaii's last monarch, often visited her garden along the Nu'uana Stream. She bequeathed it to the city for the public's enjoyment.
The garden is home of the Waikahulu Waterfall.
The developing garden includes native Hawaiian plants ...
... including the Ma'o, "Hawaiian cotton", a member of the hibiscus family. Do you have a favorite garden? One randomly selected commenter wins a book choice from my convention stash. This giveaway is open to all readers. Comments are open through Saturday, May 11, 10 pm in Hawaii. I'll post the winner on Sunday, May 12.
