I met a couple who went to Lyon Arobertum early in the summer.  They tipped a gardner $20 and mailed home an enormous box of cuttings of all sorts of rare plants from around the South Pacific.  She got 3 or 4 nice Cercestis mirabilis which are pricey plants.  And it all cost only $20 plus the postage.  Could be worth a trip to Hawaii.

Lyon Arboretum.  It is up the Manoa Valley, near the
trailhead to Manoa Falls, on Oahu.  Unfortunately (for me),
it is only open when I am at work -- that is to say,
weekdays only, closed weekends and holidays.  That section
of the island, however, is of particular interest -- the
Manoa Valley/ Mt. Tantalus area has a much greater diversity
of introduced aroids growing wild than I have seen anywhere
else in the Islands.

The Audubon Center in Waimea, Oahu has extensive botanic
gardens, with many specimens of the extinct-in-the-wild
Hibiscus brackenridgei.  But I doubt they are available for
