Foster Garden Plant Sale

27 04 2019

By the time I post this, the Annual Foster Garden Plant Sale will be over, but you can make a note of it for next year. It has been a long time since we came to this event, and I suggested it might be a good place to look for hanging baskets to decorate the newly covered deck outside.

We came away with some tillandsia and and many photos.

First I had to pay homage to the baobab tree (center). It’s the one Le Petit Prince hated because of all the leaves he had to rake up.

Bedding plants

The open bulbs trap insects, perhaps!

Hibiscus varieties. Wow!

According to Wikipedia, Foster Botanical Garden, measuring 13.5 acres (5.5 ha), is one of five public botanical gardenson Oahu. It is located at 50 North Vineyard Boulevard, Honolulu, Hawaii, United States, near Chinatown at the intersection of Nu’uanu Avenue and Vineyard Boulevard. Foster is in a highly urban area with strip malls, schools, and both Buddhist and Methodist religious facilities nearby.

No need to wait for next year’s plant sale. You can stop in for a visit to the rest of the garden anytime!
