The use of Hawaiian native plants in landscapes is becoming more commonplace in both private residences and commercial properties. Naupaka, pohinahina and akia are of course staples, but there are so many more options. Tamara will be sharing with us the best native plants for use in landscapes. She will include common varieties but will also introduce us to other less commonly used plants to increase the diversity in our gardens. She will also speak on the best cultural practices for these plants in landscape situations.
