Native Blossoms

kokio po hinahina ulei akia

Aloha all,

This is the time to see many of our native plants in full bloom here on Maui! Upper left photo is the Kokio, a native Hibiscus and to the upper right is the Po Hinahina, one of my favorite plants for Haku lei. The lower left photo is the Ulei plant which has small white blossoms and in the lower right photo is the Akia, which puts out a fragrant pua or flower.

I feel so lucky to be able to enjoy these and other Hawaiian plants on a daily basis and especially enjoy them when they seasonally bloom.

Malama pono,

Palapala
