Some pictures of plants and flowers from around here to brighten your day - Aloha from Maui County - Hawaii
Those pink fuzzy ones are Protea Kings, and the spiky ones are pincushions. These were grown in upcountry Maui, in Kula on the slopes of Haleakala - the dormant volcano.
This is Lobster Claw Heliconia - in the same family as bananas. This flower is about 15" tall. The leaves are over 6' long.
They grow very well in Haiku Maui, HI, on the windward side.
Ti leaves are abundant all over the island, but especially in the wetter areas. This colorful variety brightens up a Haiku garden. Ti leaves have many traditional uses and you can never have too many plants.
Torch Ginger flowers come in Red, Pink and White, and they are larger than their relative the edible ginger root. They like a lush tropical climate with plenty of rain.
This is my papaya tree growing down in the garden by the stream. It was grown from a seed that came out of a huge papaya.
