A story says that Pele, goddess of the volcano, desired ʻOhiʻa, but he was in love with Lehua. Pele, known for her temper, became angry and turned ʻOhiʻa into a tree. The transformation could not be undone, and the only way to reunite Lehua with her lover was to turn her into the blossoms. ʻOhiʻa is the first tree that can grow on desolate lava fields. Hula dancers often wear lei of the beautiful, vibrant red flowers.
