Botanic Notables: Hawai'i's Banyan Drive

On the mainland, celebrities get a Hollywood star; in Hawai'i, it's a tree on Banyan Drive. I drove through the trees on a recent visit to the island, dashing out of the car to stand under the towering trees and photograph the painted nameplates. Hawai'ian landscapes are defined by their plants, and so it's entirely fitting that the island catalogs its stars with this ribbon of trees.
