Limahuli Garden and Preserve is set in a verdant tropical valley on the north shore of the Hawaiian Island of Kaua`i. The Garden is backdropped by the majestic Makana Mountain and overlooks the Pacific Ocean. In Hawaiian, the name Limahuli means “turning hands,” which recognizes the ancient Hawaiians who built agricultural terraces out of lava rock and planted cultivars of kalo (taro), an important cultural food crop.

It may look like a plant, but this Antarctic sponge is really one of the longest-living creatures on earth. Found in the Antarctic Ocean, scientists once dated a specimen of the slow-growing sea dweller back to 461 AD, pegging its age at over 1,500-years-old. The Antarctic sponge has no outer protective shell, making it susceptible to predators like fish and turtles, but if left untouched can live for centuries.

Sea oats are a specialized group of monocot plants which grow mainly on the East coast of the United States. These plants are adapted for survival within saline environments as they grow very close to the ocean and experience a constant spray from the sea. To help tolerate this they have adapted long roots to hold them into place in the loose, sandy soil.
