The Beauty of Paradise

Bird of paradise

The bird of paradise, pictured above, is one of nearly 600 different kinds of plants found on UH Mānoa's campus. Many were planted in the early 20th century by a botany professor who saw the campus as an outdoor classroom. The University's Lyon Arboretum, located just north of campus, maintains plant collections from all over the world.
