Join Dave as he walks through Azalea Hill at the USNA. The garden puts on such an incredible display that thousands make a trek to view these blooming shrubs. Azaleas are easy to grow shrubs that thrive in high filtered shade or partial sun. The Azaleas Collection is just one aspect of the dramatic flower filled grounds.
Then it’s off to explore the rich foliage filled gardens of the National Tropical Botanical Garden on Kauai. The McBryde Garden showcases a rich collection of rare plants endemic to the Hawaiian Islands, saved from extinction by the hard work of the NTBG team of botanists. Visitors can walk at their own pace along the Palm Walk or Canoe Garden to take in vistas of hillside, ocean and a rushing valley stream.
In this episode of Garden Travels, Dave’s favorites include: Oakleaf Hydrangea and Matilija Poppy.
