A Jade Flower Lei - Made in Haiku Maui Hawaii

JADE FLOWER LEI

 

At the Haiku Ho'olaulea 2008 at the Haiku Community Center last weekend, we ran into someone making leis from JADE flowers.   These incredible looking flower garlands are a traditional Hawaiian custom.  A lei is worn around the neck.

The flowers grow in long bunches from a climbing vine that entwines through a tree branches.  These ones are growing in the Waipio area along the north shore of Maui Hawaii - in the Haiku district. 

That's the real color of the flowerets.

Hi Georgina!  I love the jade flower leis and remember learning how to make them (along with the ginger leis!).  Just exquisite.  Thanks for the aloha early this morning.

Beautiful pictures and flowers.  I was never into native flowers until I mover to The Florida Keys.  We have some beautiful landscaping here too.

Hi Lesley - I hope you can find one, it's kind of a specialty item.  A lot of stores carry leis - Star Market, Longs, Safeway, Big K-Mart, WalMart, etc.  Hope you have a great vacation!
