Wahiawa Botanical Garden is home to tropical flora requiring a cooler environment. A special effort has been made to develop the collection of native Hawaiian plants.
In the 1920's, the Hawaii Sugar Planters Association leased land from the State of Hawaii as a site for experimental tree planting. Most of the large trees still growing here date from that decade and were planted under the direction of Dr. Harold Lyon. Control of the property was transferred to the City and County of Honolulu in 1950. It was opened as a botanical garden in 1957.
Today, Wahiawa Botanical Garden is one of the Honolulu Botanical Gardens. This unique garden system provides visitors the opportunity to view diverse plant collections at five different garden sites around Oahu.
