The Friends of Honolulu Botanical Gardens

is a support organization serving

the city’s Honolulu Botanical Gardens system

through its fund-raising efforts.

The Honolulu Botanical Gardens are comprised of five gardens on the island of O'ahu, Hawai'i.

Our site contains information about our gardens, links to botanical information and a listing of events for members and the public. Our group hosts many special events and offers instructional classes, 

special garden tours and plant sales throughout the year.


Upcoming Events + Blooms


The 60th year of the Friends of Honolulu Botanical Gardens has been a full one indeed. We started with a celebratory event held at Foster featuring the Royal Hawaiian Band with laudatory greetings from our friends in the C&C.

We co-sponsored the Hawaii Triennial 2022 at Foster Garden in the spring, the 40th Anniversary of Ho’omaluhia honoring Paul Weissich in the summer followed by a musical evening at Wahiawa Garden.


We are delighted to have a new roof on our Gift Shop and have stocked more locally sourced merchandise in light of ongoing shipping delays. Our books continue to be popular with residents and visitors alike.


We are excited for the coming year and our continued outreach into all of the HBG gardens and the community. Keep an eye out for a plant sale and other activities as we celebrate the upcoming holidays. Remember that your gifts help to make all this possible.

2022 is a year to remember!
