McBryde Garden

We are five gardens with one mission: to enrich life by perpetuating tropical plants, ecosystems, and cultural heritage. We do so through an approach called biocultural conservation that integrates Indigenous knowledge and community to achieve lasting change for our shared environment. Together we can grow a brighter future for Hawaiʻi's cherished plants and all they sustain. 

Located on the South Shore of the Hawaiian island of Kaua’i, McBryde Garden is nestled in the picturesque and historic Lawa’i Valley. The garden is a veritable botanical ark of tropical flora and home to the largest ex situ collection of native Hawaiian flora in existence.

Our extensive collections of palms, flowering trees, rubiaceae, heliconias, orchids, and many others have been wild-collected by botanists and biologists from throughout tropical regions around the world and transported to McBryde Garden to research, cultivate and thrive.
