Charming floral boutique in the middle of Kaka’ako? Yes please! Hello Paiko.
Paiko offers a vast array of plants, flowers, pots, planters, tiny plastic jungle animals, crystals, books and dare we say a lovely cup of coffee!?! Paiko shares a space with Arvo – a sweet little coffee bar that whips up a mean (and gorgeous) latte and yummy loaded avo toast!
Pick and choose your stems to customize a bouquet or arrangement, build your own terrarium or sign up for any of their workshops- including Flower Crowns!
Paiko is a breath of fresh air in the middle of Kaka’ako. Bright, colorful, local. Just how we like it. Our little partner in crime likes it too!
Had a chance to rediscover the Maui Nui Botanical Gardens this past weekend as they hosted their annual native Hawaiian plant sale. Lots to learn and lots of lovely photo ops as well!
What a great place whose mission it to “protect Maui Nui’s rich native plants and cultural history”. They offer self guided or docent led group tours. It’s a magical garden filled with lots native and polynesian introduced plants. Learn about how they grow, their unique and individual characteristics and their importance in the Hawaiian culture yesterday and today.
Pua Aloalo is one of six species of Hibiscus native to Hawai’i.
The yellow Pua Aloalo is the State Flower however today we are featuring the beautiful white flower. It’s delicate white petals and bright pink stamen are signature. The width and length of the petals can vary.
These plants do well outdoors with full sun and frequent watering. They bring a sense of cultural beauty to any outdoor space.
