The demand for native Hawaiian plants in commercial and residential and public landscaping is growing and shows promise of becoming an up and coming industry. Beautiful and distinctive native species are being used as signature plants at resorts, in planned communities, and at exclusive private residences. Federal and state laws that require the use of these plants are driving new opportunities to select and grow these unique plants. Our state is home to 282 endangered and 10 threatened native Hawaiian plant species listed under the US Endangered Species Act. Our reputation as being “the extinction capital of the world” gives added urgency to the need to embrace, use and preserve these native plants – Hawaii’s unique botanical heritage.

Join us on Friday, November 8th, at the Komohana Ag Complex to learn cutting edge information about how to work with Hawaii’s unique natives: design, propagation and maintenance.
