Discover the paradise of Hawaii, where lush tropical palm trees flourish year-round.
Experience a tropical climate with hot summers and mild winters, where temperatures range from 85-90 °F (29-32 °C) in summer and 79-83 °F (26-28 °C) in winter. Embrace abundant rainfall and refreshing winds. And did you know? Even the highest peaks of Hawaii occasionally receive a snowy surprise during winter!
Although the storm season occurs from June through November, Hawaii is rarely affected by tropical storms. However, there is an increasing trend of hurricanes originating from Mexico heading towards the state. With USDA zones ranging from 10a to 11, Hawaii offers a diverse horticultural landscape.
Hawaii is home to a diverse range of palm trees that add to the island's lush, tropical beauty. Among them, the Cocos nucifera, or Coconut Palm, is probably the most iconic. This palm not only provides visual appeal but also offers coconut fruit, a staple in Hawaiian cuisine. Another popular palm is the Pritchardia pacifica, or Fiji Fan Palm, which is known for its fan-shaped leaves and can grow up to 30 feet high. The tropical Dictyosperma album, or Hurricane Palm, also thrives in Hawaii's climate, named for its ability to withstand high wind speeds. Finally, the Veitchia merrillii, or Christmas Palm, is often used to adorn landscapes during holidays due to its bright red fruits. Each of these palms contributes to the vibrant, tropical landscape that makes Hawaii a paradise.
