Why give your mother a bouquet when you can give her an entire garden?
Every Mother’s Day, Kauai’s Allerton Garden invites families to enjoy this special day for free. The botanical garden is home to thousands of exotic plants from around the world, complete with water fountains, waterfalls and stunning statuary. Moms will especially like the Italian bronze mermaid statues that lounging poolside.
Located in the depths of Lawai Valley, this garden is beyond amazing. Its outdoor garden rooms and pathways are among the most notable horticultural features. Robert Allerton and his adopted son combined their talents as a skillful artist and architect, respectively, to create this unique garden concept.
Even Hawaiian Queen Emma once walked the grounds of this garden estate. She planted the colorful wall of bougainvillea you see today. Sadly, the only reason for her stay at the garden was to mourn the loss of her husband and son.
This Mother’s Day, take a stroll through this magical garden with the mother in your life. It’s more than a bouquet of flowers could ever do!
