Stunning and Amazing Hawaiian Flowers That Everyone Must Know
Hawaii’s native flowers existed in the American State a long time before even the Polynesians and the seeds from the island’s most popular and attractive features were blown by the air which eventually sailed across the Pacific Ocean and made landfall on the whim. 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. This useful resource enlightens people, not just about flowers but the popular types that are found in Hawaii which anyone that visits the island must be keen to see during their trip.
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. 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.
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. 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. 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. The branches and bases make it very hardy as well.
