Honolulu -- Wahiolu olu II

Landscape architect:
Mechler, Stephen F.  Search this
Provenance:
The Garden Club of Honolulu  Search this
Collection Creator:
Garden Club of America  Search this
Type:
Archival materials
Place:
Wahiolu olu II (Honolulu, Hawaii)
United States of America -- Hawaii -- Honolulu County -- Honolulu
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, site plans, a narrative description of the garden, a copy of an article about the house (with a photo of the garden) and other information.
General:
The subdivision of a larger site (Wahiolu olu, Archives of American Gardens HI018), resulted in the creation of a new home and surrounding garden on land totaling 11,000 square feet. Located in a lush bamboo rainforest 1,500 feet above Honolulu, with outstanding views and over 100 inches of rainfall per year, the garden incorporates a terraced hillside with a variety of colorful plantings and floral borders. Moss rock retaining walls, antique wrought iron arches, a large water lily pond, and a waterfall are all featured elements of the garden. The home's entry is introduced by a small, fragrant white garden, framed by restored wrought-iron fencing once used at Iolani Palace. The garden's plant life includes mixtures of bromeliads, tropical vireya, roses, undulating hedges of plumbago, begonias, lantana, gardenias, anthuriums, dahlias, amaryllis, and clivia. In addition, there is a blue garden featuring blue agapanthus, hydrangeas, abelia, and brunfelsia. The planting beds surround a thick green lawn of St. Augustine grass. Lawn furniture and a forge converted to a grill provide opportunities for outdoor living. Many trees--guava, orange, jacaranda, pink datura, plumeria, banana, gold, avocado, and banyan--make the garden their home, while bamboo hedges tower above the vegetation and separate the site from adjoining properties. Because of the many restrictions that protect the environment, watershed, and conservation of this area it will remain a pure, green, rare, and beautiful place on the island of Oahu.
Persons associated with the garden include Stephen F. Mechler (landscape architect, 2004).
