Growing plants for Hawaiian Lei

Growing Plants for Hawaiian Lei
85 Plants for Gardens, Conservation, and Business

We are proud to have assisted the College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources at the University of Hawai‘i on a number of their publications in recent years.

Growing Plants for Hawaiian Lei is the definitive work on its subject, a glossy, generously illustrated book packed with useful information for the home gardener or for anyone wishing to get into the lei marketing business.      

A special section deals with the spiritual and cultural significance of the lei and lei making in ancient Hawai‘i. The traditional Hawaiian conservation ethic and concept of sustainable agriculture is discussed and related to the threatened native ecosystems of today’s Hawaiian Islands.
