Thanks to a donation of dwarf mondo grass from Mountain Meadows landscape nursery, a bare patch near the entry path to Shoroan, the tea house, was completed. East Hawaii Master Gardeners Daniel Heitman and Diane Fournier finished the weeding and installed the new plants.
Kenji Kuroshima and Keiji Ichikawa from Friends of Lili`uokalani Gardens tackled removal of small banyan trees and roots from the roof of the tea house. They are visible in the mondo grass photo in the background and in the following photo.
