Hui Ku Maoli Ola was formed to help protect and perpetuate Hawaii’s unique natural resources and cultural practices.
What originally started as a backyard hobby in 1992 has blossomed into a thriving business in the new millennium, now supplying Hawaiian plants to State and Federal agencies, private and commercial landscapers, hotels and resorts, and retail monsters like The Home Depot and Wal-Mart. Plants from our Waimanalo nursery can now be found in restoration projects and in countless gardens and landscapes Statewide.
