Royal Palm

The Royal Palm is symbolic in the design of Hawaiʻi’s State Capitol.  Forty columns, 60-feet high surround the building, representing Royal Palm trees.

On September 9, 1850 Gerrit Parmele Judd's wife shaked out some small round seeds after his trip to Kingston, Jamaica.  The Judds then first planted the seeds on the grounds of Judd's sister, Mrs Asher B Bates (at the corner of Bates and Nuʻuanu.)
