We highly advise visiting the Kula Botanical Garden. Simply put...it just feels right! Not a tourist dive ( although plenty of tourists visit) it very much a "loving hands at home" effort. Not perfect but just right...if only your garden at home could be like this!

This was fairly inexpensive and was a nice place to walk through. The temperature is great at the elevation of the site. It doesn't take too long to walk through. I recommend to work it in if you can pair it with other attractions.

This is a pretty garden created by a Landscape Architect who loves Hawaiian plants. It's a relaxing and interesting little upcountry stroll where it's not as hot as the beach areas. Nice to do in conjuction with Lavender Farm or Haleakala.

A nice quiet place full of lush plants and sadly, mosquitos. Once we drowned ourselves in the expensive and relatively ineffective repellent sold there, we were able to enjoy the quiet pathways and nice, secluded gardens.

This is a prize work of a couple for over 45 years. They have sculpted the grounds and planted a large variety of Hawaiian species and other tropical ones. Many plants are labeled,but an equal number were not, and it was frustrating trying to guess. It is hilly, walkways were wide, and the map provided made finding all the special... More

This is a great stop if you're exploring Upcountry Maui. It was lightly raining when we were there so there weren't many other people which made it a nice visit. Lots of colorful flowers, plants and even rainbow eucalyptus trees! They even have a few horned chameleons. Make sure the bring bug spray for your walk.

Came on our way back from haleakala. Pretty gardens with a variety of cool flowers and plants to see ! Not sure it is worth ten dollars each but it was a nice experience nonetheless. Peaceful and beautiful !

If you're in the upcountry area and you like botanical gardens, the Kula Botanical Garden is a good visit. It has the vibe of a small botanical garden run by a family -- this is not a massive operation tended by a large team of gardeners ensuring the the paths and plants are perfectly maintained. We were there on a... More

We drove out of our way from Kahana just to see this garden. We weren't sorry. Use the coupon from the local coupon books. We loved our slow exploration of these gardens. They have all kinds of examples of plants. It was enjoyable.
