Near mile marker 10 on Highway 37 you'll find a sign on the mauka side informing you of our next stop, the Enchanting Floral Gardens. The Enchanting Floral Gardens in Kula has eight acres of walking tours displaying over 1,500 species of tropical and semi-tropical plants and flowers from around the world. The more you stroll up the path the more rewarding it is. The garden has a wide variety of exotic flowers such as proteas, orchids, hibiscus, jade vines and a variety of fruit trees. Some have complained the gardens are not maintained well, but overall we were pleased with it and found the price of $5 (per adult) reasonable. It's a nice stop on a day trip to Haleakala or just when visiting up-country Maui. We also recommend Kula Botanical Gardens, located in the same vicinity.
