Wondering what to do with poinsettia plants?


Anna Ranch Heritage Center in Waimea is again accepting potted poinsettia plants to fill in its gardens for all of the island to enjoy next holiday season.  Plants may be dropped off 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays at the ranch at 65-1480 Kawaihae Road.

For information or to arrange pick up of plants for those who cannot drop them by, call Dr. Momi Naughton at 885-4426.

The historic 160-year-old Anna Ranch, famous for its setting on the flanks of the Kohala mountains and its herd of prized white Charolais cattle, was the home of expert horsewoman-rancher-community patron Anna Lindsey Perry-Fiske. The home, started about 1910 on a ranch founded by her grandfather in 1848, has undergone partial restoration and provides a glimpse of a bygone era and family that was dedicated to the land, animals and paniolo culture. 

The gardens are maintained as part of Perry-Fiske’s dream of her home becoming a heritage center-museum. 

The home is open for tours at 10 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. Wednesdays and Fridays, and 9 a.m., 1:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. Saturdays.  Advance reservations are requested by calling 885-4426.
