Most People Are Surprised To Discover That Hawaii Is Home To One Of The World’s Best Cactus Gardens
With a climate unlike the rest of the United States, Hawaii is home to some of the country’s most unique botanical gardens. These gardens feature thousands of species of tropical plants as well as flora indigenous to our beautiful gardens, and while they are all gorgeous in their own way, there is one garden that stands out in a crowd. Not only is the 35-acre Moir Gardens quite beautiful, but it also just so happens to be one of the best cactus gardens in the country — surprising, considering the Aloha State’s known for its lush landscapes.
