Located on the southern end of Kauai is McBryde gardens, a sprawling estate nestled in the Lawai Valley. It is one of the five National Tropical Botanical Garden (NTBG) organization's non-profit gardens. Like many other attractions in Kauai, the 200-acre garden was originally a sugarcane plantation. The site was known as the Lawa'i Garden until 2000 when its name was changed to honor a large donation made by descendants of the McBryde family.
McBryde Garden has the area's largest assortment of native plants. It is NTBG's flagship location and preserves many plant species that would otherwise be extinct. View more information about the flora of the McBryde Garden along with its current event schedule here.
