We love unthirsty plants! Come and support the Halawa Xeriscape Garden's Annual Unthirsty Plant Sale, by joining us for some unique plant shopping and fun! We'll be there with a wide range of succulents and air plants!
The activities at this family-friendly and admission-free event are focused on xeriscaping, a creative way to reduce outdoor water use through efficient landscaping. The plant sale will be a fun-filled day for the whole family.
