Protea blooms

Stop and Smell the Flowers

The volcanic soil on the island creates a fertile world easily seen from the Highway 377 loop that passes through Kula. It’s home to the protea belt that produces the red, pink, and yellow flowers with hefty bulbous, conical, or spiky shapes making them resemble blossoms from Mars. Kula Botanical Garden showcases the flowers, along with sandalwood and other island flora.
