Some of The Striking Flowers That No One Can Manage to Ignore Every Time They Visit Hawaii
It is interesting to learn that flowers existed in Hawaii way before even Polynesians found their way there and all thanks to the wind that blew the seeds, the seeds eventually made landfall on the impulse. The seeds that were blown by the wind developed into the global flowers and plants which the people of Hawaii use for both medicinal purposes and knowledge as well. For anyone that does not just love flowers but would like to know more about the beautiful native Hawaiian flowers that they should take note of when they eventually visit the island and even in some remote mountain valleys of the tiny islands, they should read through this article to know more.
First on the list comes Viola chamissoniana which is also known as Panakani in Hawaii is a relative to the violets that people easily find in their gardens across the world today but unlike the ordinary violets, these flowers are usually pure white. Viola chamissoniana is however among the endangered flower species and anyone that would like to see it in the wild must travel to one of the three remote spots in the Waianae Mountain Range found in Oahu.
There is also Hibiscus kokio that is so popular among most popular bearing in mind that hibiscus is found in almost every part of the world today. Apart from being a local hibiscus flower in Hawaii, kokio is also distinctively bright and does not just thrive in the world today but thrives easily in any part of the modern world as well. In addition to being very safe for human consumption especially medicinally, kokio is not anywhere close to becoming distinct as it can grow anywhere at any time which eliminates its chances of becoming endangered.
There is also the Hawaiian rose which is also known as Osteomeles anthylidfolia or ‘ulei’ which is another different Hawaiian flower type that people should add to their cute bouquet species on their list. Its branches are usually vine-like and they are referred to as groundcover and they sprawl across four to ten feet of the wet ground. Most Hawaiians used the branches to make fishing nets and digging poles as well as long spears not forgetting ukeke boards. It is interesting how the plant can not only survive a fire but also grow back from ashes as well as exhibit high characters of resiliency. For anyone wondering why the plant is always hardy, it is because of the bases and branches.
