are actual photos taken at our farm of the flowers you will be receiving.
We grow 65 different varieties of Heliconia, Ginger, Costus, Calathea,
They have been brought here to the Garden Island of Kauai by dedicated
collectors and have thrived in our warm and humid climate. The North
Shore of Kauai is especially suited for their propagation, with
our ample rain- fall and steady temperatures it is often exciting
to see a newly introduced variety grow and flower for the first
Some of the species are actually rare in their country of origin.
Growing only in the wilds of the forest, new species are constantly
being discovered. Below are some of flowers that were blooming at
the time that we took these photos.
Because of the relative new-ness of some of these species you will
find a wide degree of variation in their names from one location

Here is a collection of Costus flowers that
we grow on our farm. The Costus family of flowers aren't in the
Heliconia family but offer a wonderfull variation of color and shape.
Their long lasting color and hardiness make them a farm favorite.
The Calathea family is a distant cousin of
the Heliconia and offers some of the most diverse variation of color,
shape, and texture. I wish that I had more of them blooming at the
time I took these photos to showcase all their exotic differences.
I'll try to add more photos as they bloom.
Ginger is our farm mainstay. While these photos
look very similar they are actually of three different varieties.
We strive to provide fresh vibrant flowers in every box and by growing
several varieties of Ginger we can take advantage of their different
blooming cycles to assure beautiful red ginger in every box.
