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.
Viola chamissoniana comes first on the list with its local name being Panakani from the violets family with a pure white color and is commonly found in gardens across the world today. It is sad that Panakani is an endangered flower species in Hawaii and people must do anything possible to protect it while those that would like to see it must find time to visit the three specific places that still have it.
Hibiscus kokio falls in the ordinary hibiscus family and so most people are familiar with it as it is found in most parts of the modern world. It is not just an ordinary hibiscus native flower on Hawaii but on the contrary, shines so bright and thrives in any part of the world which explains why it is very popular and most people can identify it so easily. Unlike panakani, kokio is so common and does not seem like it is becoming distinct any time soon all thanks to its ability to religiously thrive anywhere while at the same time it is medicinally beneficial which explain why most Hawaiians brew and drink it all the time.
Next on the list is ulei which has many other names such as the Hawaiian rose and Osteomeles anthylidfolia. It grows on branches that look like vines that are known as groundcover which sprawl about four and ten feet across a wet ground. Most Hawaiians used the branches to make fishing nets and digging poles as well as long spears not forgetting ukeke boards. The plant on the other hand is highly resilient and among the very few native plants that can survive fire or grow back from ashes. The branches and bases make it very hardy as well.
