Kalanikai is the name of the condo complex where we made our home
base. It is located in the heart of Kailua-Kona at Kuakini Hwy. and
Henry St. We were fortunate to find this gem in paradise. Its
grounds are like a botanical garden and I thought you would like to see
the great flora and plants of Kalanikai. To the left is a cactus tree!
I've never seen a cactus tree before, but that sucker is about 30 feet
I'm not sure how it came to be that tall, but it is
quite a sight.
Every where you look at Kalanikai is yet another
marvel. I guess that is why we never got tired of coming home.
To the right is a traveler's palm. For
some reason I like these trees more than any other palm. This one is
quite a bit taller than most.
The plant below is growing out of lava. Well enough of the talk,
let's see some pictures.
Above is the single candle wax palm on the property. I
don't know why there were not more because they are a very pretty plant.
