Hawaii has seven beautiful native Hawaiian hibiscuses. I purchased one yesterday at the local Pahoa Farmers Market (or so I was told it is one). It already has a single trunk and I hope to continue to shape it as a tree. Check back in a few weeks to see how it is doing and if it truly is a native.
I moved to Hawaii from Tempe, Arizona with my life partner Scott in the summer of 2007. We both took early retirement from "Corporate America" to build a house on the sea cliffs of Hawaiian Paradise Park, in Kea'au, Hawaii.
Living oceanfront in the Puna District of the Big Island offers gardening challenges. Follow me as I take the journey!
