About Us

Hui kū Maoli Ola is the one-stop shopping destination for all of your native Hawaiian plant needs. We offer over 100 different species of native plants from all corners of the Hawaiian islands and numerous plant species introduced by the early Polynesian settlers, all of which have substantial significance in Hawaiian cultural practices. Whether you want to buy a single specimen plant for your home garden, need 10,000 plants for a commercial landscape, or require 100,000 plants for a restoration project, Hui kū Maoli Ola has got you covered!

What originally started as a backyard hobby in 1997 has blossomed into a thriving business in the new millennium, now supplying Hawaiian plants to state and federal agencies, private and commercial landscapers, hotels and resorts and retail giants like The Home Depot and Walmart. Plants from our nursery can now be found in restoration projects and in countless gardens and landscapes statewide.

Hui kū Maoli Ola is an organization dedicated to the perpetuation and preservation of Hawaii's natural history and culture. By integrating education, quality restoration and consulting services, and the propagation of native Hawaiian plants, we are making improvements to and increasing public appreciation for the unique natural environment and cultural history of our precious island home.
