You may think of Hawaii as a tropical paradise, where it rains every afternoon. But water conservation is a concern for Hawaii too. In 1989, the Honolulu Board of Water Supply created the Halawa Xeriscape Garden to demonstrate and promote awareness of xeriscaping. Each August, the garden hosts a very popular “Un-thirsty Plant Sale.” The garden showcases both native and international plants from dry, tropical regions. To read more, visit the Friends of Halawa Xeriscape Garden (FOHXG) site. This non-profit community organization supports the water conservation program of the garden.
Favorite xeriscape plants that grow well in Hawaii include: sedum, echeveria, and kalanchoe.
