Xeriscapes in Hawaii

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.

  1. “A lawn is nature under totalitarian rule.” Loved that quote on your blog! So true!

    We in Texas also love to use Sedum for native landscaping. Is Xeriscaping becoming more common in Hawai?

    Love your site and keep with the good work!


  2. But wanna input that you have a very decent site, I like the layout it really stands out.
