It did not take me long to figure out why there is nothing growing in several areas of our garden in Hawaii. Of course, like any buyer, I can't help but wonder if this is something the seller knew and failed to disclose or forgot to tell me. I find it really odd that when I dig through the volcanic soil about 6 inches in those areas, I encounter water.These are not big pools of water but it is constant. Maybe there is a reason that Kona has a Water Garden Club, according to the Bonsai Schefflera I found. He said: when you have lemons, make lemonade. Which is the same thing as my motto: When it rains on your parade, parade in the rain. You can read more in my personal blog today at this link: Umbrella Trees are the Perfect Solution to Wet Gardens.
