the Royal Ha. Gardens,  Seaforthia Elegans magnificent 40 - 50 ' specimens
next to the Army Museum,  Chamadoreas (Bamboo palms),  == Hibiscus all over
the area ==Pothos were used for ground covers == Plumeria trees white / pink
/ yellow & red ? == Many types of ferns == Hawaiian Tree ferns == Monstrous
Banyon trees next to the zoo & Intn'l market place == Ficus Benjamina ==
Chinese Banyon trees ?? == Rhaphiolepis == Oleanders.

Some of the spelling may be wrong, but close.
