About the event

In 1958, Koko Crater on the eastern side of O`ahu was set aside for development into a botanical garden. Plant collections occupy sixty acres of the inner slopes and basin of this 200-acre crater.

This garden focuses on the cultivation of rare and endangered dryland plants.  Xeriscape concepts are used to transform this dry landscape into a garden where plants suitable to desert-like conditions can flourish.
