Bradish Johnson founded Protea Gardens of Maui in 1979. We are a family-owned and operated flower farm nestled high on the slopes of Haleakala Crater on the beautiful island of Maui. Our dedicated "Ohana" (Hawaiian for family) tends to over 10,000 plants on our farm. With a history of hybridization and propagation experiments in our nurseries, we have an extensive variety of beautiful protea on our farm. Due to our unique micro-climate, found few places in the world, we can grow the finest Protea in the Western Hemisphere.
Gregory Johnson specializes in large infrastructure projects on the farm. If it involves a backhoe and moving dirt around, he's in his happy place. His knowledge of proteas and their growing requirements is extensive, and with his degree in agriculture from Washington State University, he is well suited as the Farm Manager. If you need consulting on your protea planting projects, reach out to Greg.
Leilani Johnson is like a kolea bird that flies in from the Pacific Northwest to work on the farm in the wintertime when the blooms are at their peak. She specializes in sales, picking, shipping, marketing, and communications.
Brad Johnson is the undisputed king of quality control, ensuring the blooms we harvest and ship out are perfect. He loves to mow, and can pack a box like nobody's business. An avid surfer and snowboarder, he enjoys spending time in nature and creating fine woodworking pieces when not busy on the farm.
