Flowers of the Islands
During the summer months, when most Maui flora is blooming, it is difficult to not take interesting photos of such interesting subjects.

Beautiful flower images! Did you take them in a botanical garden or just in different areas of Maui?

I would say that the majority of them were taken in botanical gardens however many were on hotel or resturant properties.
While climate is climate and any of them would grow along the roadside, people are people and the blossoms would end up on someone's table in a vase. For that reason, they need the protection and safe harbor of the commercial garden.
Can you imagine this Blue Heliconia surving along side of the road?
Unforturnately not, but this one was within easy reach within a botanical garden.
