This garden, also known as ‘AKL’, is located on the slopes of Haleakala.
A very beautiful and serene setting saturated in the luscious scent of lavender.
Gazebos and benches beckon one to a place of peace and calm. The temperature is just perfect at this altitude on Maui.
This garden grows many varieties of lavender. I didn’t realize there are so many kinds.
One variety grown here is Sweet Lavender.
These beautiful handmade wooden signs help to identify the lavender types throughout the garden.
I learned Sweet Lavender is known as a tropical lavender because it will not survive in temperatures below 32 degrees F.
Sweet Lavender is used for crafting and dried arrangements. Above is a picture I took inside their Gift Shop.
