Caption

The 17 acre Hawaii Tropical botanical Garden is located off of Highway 19 on the lush Hamakua Coast, 8 1/2 miles north of Hilo in the sheltered Onomea Valley on the Big Island of Hawaii. In Hawaii, onomea means "the best place." And indeed, no better place exists.Designed and planted by one man and his helper, the garden is a museum of living plants that attracts photographers, gardeners, botanists, scientists, and nature lovers from around the world. The Garden's collection of tropical plants is international in scope. Over 2,000 species, representing more than 125 families and 750 genera, are found here. The 40-acre valley is a natural greenhouse, protected from buffeting tradewinds and blessed with fertile volcanic soil. Some of the Garden's enormous mango and coconut palm trees are over 100 years old. Tropical plants that struggle to grow in homes and gardens across America reach gigantic proportions here. The view I have chosen is in the Orchid garden.
