Do you have any of these plants in your yard?
Some of the biggest threats to Kauai’s forests can come from our own back yards. The Pono Endorsement Program has identified some of the worst invasive species that should be avoided.
Participating Pono-Endorsed Nursery and Landscaping professionals on Kauai have pledged to discontinue sale and use of these species. Blacklisted plants have already been discontinued. Phaseout plants were previously in common usage and are currently being removed from use.
