Proteas at the Enchanting Floral Gardens

UPDATE: Sadly the Enchanting Floral Gardens have been closed for a while now.

I’ve had Kula’s Enchanting Floral Gardens on my ‘to see’ list for some time now. I really wasn’t quite sure what to expect. I had read that it is a botanical garden of flowers and trees from around the world (most not native to Hawaii) and was sure looking forward to seeing them.

This past year the gardens were taken over by new owners. From what I am told things had previously been let go a bit, and now it’s quite a project to prune and trim and bring everything back to where the new owners would like it to be. Don’t get me wrong, this is by no means a Butchart Gardens (Victoria BC) but is more of a natural look. However, the flowers were amazing – I really very much enjoyed it. Admission is $10/adult and $5/kids. Personally, I preferred going without my kids.
Here are a few protea I saw. I loved them!

 

 

 

look at those curls!
this is how protea grow – in a shrub!
