Re: Aroids/Gingers in Hawaii


Dear Tim:

While you're on the Big Island, be sure to visit the Hawaii Tropical
Botanical Garden, located on the Scenic Route, seven miles north of Hilo,
off of Highway 19.  Lots of aroids, gingers, heliconia, etc.  Please be
sure to ask for me at the reception desk and I will comp you in.  Oh, by
the way, we are closed on weekends.  

While you are in the Hilo area, be sure to visit Mark Collins at Eden Farms
(Phone:  (808) 959-7943).  He is a very avid Zingiberales enthusiast and
you are in for a treat if you pay him a visit.  Also, the Hilo area is full
of commercial Anthurium nurseries which may be of interest.

Have a good trip!
