Minutes west of Kukuiula is the National Tropical Botanical Garden (NTBG), a the world’s largest collection of native Hawaiian plant life — and inspiration for Kukuiula’s own tropical landscaping.

The National Tropical Botanical Garden is dedicated to preserving tropical plant diversity through plant exploration, propagation, habitat restoration, scientific research, and education. NTBG’s gardens and preserves are safe havens for at-risk species that otherwise might disappear forever. As definitive as it is diverse, this rare collection of palms, heliconias, breadfruit and orchids is a splendid representation of the range and beauty of flora on Kauai.
