Anthurium, also known as flamingo flower, is a popular houseplant because it is generally easy to care for and because of its showy, heart-shaped flowers. This is a great plant even for inexperienced gardeners. Maintenance is low, although dividing anthuriums is sometimes necessary to keep them blooming.
The aptly named Garden of Eden Arboretum & Botanical Garden is the creation of Alan Bradbury, Maui’s first I.S.A. certified arborist and landscape designer. Alan purchased the 26-acre site in 1991 with a vision of restoring the area’s natural ecosystem with Hawai’i’s native and indigenous species. Along the way the opportunity arose to include exotic plants and trees from the South Pacific region and tropical rain forests throughout the world. There are currently over 700 botanically labeled plants, including the most extensive collection of Ti plants in Hawaii. Ti has a long history of usage by the Polynesians in ceremonies and rituals, and is still considered one of Hawai’i’s most culturally useful plants.
Visitors to the Garden can roam through an elaborate series of meandering trails alive with brilliant colors, unique flowers, rare trees, and the sweet aroma of tropical blossoms. Panoramic vistas, including the sparkling Pacific, hidden waterfalls, and Keopuka Rock, of “Jurassic Park” fame, are a photographer’s dream.
