While the sensuously calming LAVENDER PLANT is most commonly associated with summer in the South of France, Maui visitors who adore the flower’s relaxing fragrance are pleased to learn that the plant also thrives in the Valley Island’s tropical climate. That’s right: At ALI‘I KULA LAVENDER FARM, you can SEE LAVENDER IN BLOOM ALL YEAR LONG.
Nestled in Maui’s breathtaking Upcountry on the slopes of Haleakala, the mystical Ali‘i Kula Lavender (AKL) Farm is indeed an enchanting place. The 13.5-acre property, perched at an elevation of 4,000 feet, is home to 55,000 LAVENDER PLANTS and approximately 45 DIFFERENT VARIETIES OF LAVENDER. KULA’S COOL, DRY CLIMATE ENABLES OLIVE TREES, HYDRANGEA, PROTEA AND SUCCULENTS to flourish year-round under MEDITERRANEAN-LIKE CONDITIONS. Much more than a sustainably sound working lavender farm, AKL is a botanical enclave of education, history and community support.
Explore AKL on your own, or take part in a group walking tour or activity. WALKING TOURS are offered daily. En route, you’ll learn the history of Maui lavender and plans for its future, while soaking in the beautiful scenery. Visit aliikulalavender.com to learn more.
