William Hillebrand brought new plants as well, 1865.

New plants.—Aboard the trade ship of the Chinese laborers which Dr. Hillebrand sent for, arrived some plants which were never seen before in Hawaii, that being some banana plants [pohuli maia], unusual sweet fruits [hua momona ano e], tea  plants which we drink, orange trees [laau alani], and Cinnamon [Kinamona]. The number of plants were sixty-six; some died and those remaining were planted in the yard of the Police Magistrate [Lunakanawai Hoomalu], Montgomery. If they grow well, they will be spread here and there, because they belong to the Agricultural Society [Ahahui Mahiai].
