Anyone on Oahu who loves gardening or landscaping should pay at least one visit to Waimanalo on the Windward side in the near future.
It’s sort of like wine country for gardeners — with various nurseries nestled throughout the lush and beautiful valley. You pay a visit, pick up a few water lilies and talk story with resident plant experts while admiring the cascading waterfalls off the Ko’olau mountains.
