The University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo Botanical Gardens are botanical gardens on the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo campus, located at 200 West Kawili Street, Hilo, Hawaiʻi on the island of Hawaiʻi. They are open daily without charge.

The gardens were established by UH-Hilo professor Don Hemmes at some time in the 1980s.[1]

The gardens contain one of Hawaiʻi's best cycad collections, with nearly a hundred species from Africa, China, North and Central America, and Australia. It also contains palm trees from around the world, with an almost complete collection of Hawaiian Pritchardia spp. including the endangered Loʻulu.
