Amy B.H. Greenwell Ethnobotanical Garden
Easy to drive by on the twisting two-lane highway, this garden offers a wealth of Hawaiian ethnobotanical traditions. On 12 acres, 250 types of plants are grown that were typical in an early Hawaiian ahupuaa, the usually pie-shaped land divisions that ran from the mountains to the sea. The new visitor center, now on the south side of the garden, includes a gift shop. The garden is 12 mi south of Kailua-Kona, just past mile marker 110, across from the Manago Hotel. Call for information on guided tours. www.bishopmuseum.org/greenwell. COST: $7. OPEN: Tues.--Sun. 9--4.
