A typical view of the grounds of the Hana Maui Botanical Gardens on Ulaino Road in Hana, east Maui. Situated within the Ko'olau coastal rain forest preserve, the "gardens" give the appearance of natural growth and conditions.

Grass-covered footpaths let the visitor wander freely through the grounds. The copious rainfall of the area (more than 100 inches a year) and the landowner's benign neglect allow the various species of trees, bushes, shrubs, and flowering plants to experience natural growth cycles with only a little human intervention on their behalf.
