Colorful tropical ti leaves in the Maui sunshine

What can I say, it's Monday and sometimes a little lightness is required.  

Colorful ti leaves in the Maui sunshine

These are ti plants, and the leaves are called ti leaves, but not the kind you make a drink from.  The leaves have many uses here in Hawaii and almost every yard will have some growing.  They say it's good luck to plant one at every corner of your house.  You can't really have too many because they are useful for cooking, serving food, decorating, making lei and other crafts, and more.  With a wide variety of colors and sizes, it's fun to collect many different types in your garden.  Rugged and easy to grow, they can take a lot of abuse and still be healthy.

Grow your own ti leaves in Haiku Maui after you find a home to buy.

Really lovely, Georgie... my kind of plant... rugged, easy to grow and can take a lot of abuse. :)

On those occasions that I do get to visit your beautiful state, they are the first thing I see when I get off the plane. Just beautiful.

Hi Georgie Hunter R(S) 58089 - So beautiful... This is the time of the year, we would come for a month.  I love it on Maui during Feb-March. I enjoy watching whales.  By the time we would get back to Sedona the plum trees are all in bloom.  Unfortunately, this is a busy selling season for Sedona.

Beautiful plants with multiple shades of color. I would love these in my garden, but our cold winters probably would not be a good climate for them.

They are beautiful, and some are growing in Southern California, and I even see them here in Santa Barbara.  I did not know they bring good luck when planted in the corners of a home.  A

I forgot to mention they are really easy to propagate.  Just break off a piece and stick it into a pot of soil or into the ground.  It's that easy.

Georgie Hunter R(S) 58089 - What an interesting plant! I think I would like to study botany to learn more about plants like ti leaves. They have so many different uses and produce quantities of beauty.

Thank you for introducing me to this wonderful plant!

Mahalo Georgie Hunter R(S) 58089 in reminding me of the luck and good fortune associated with the Ti Leaves.  They are often planted here as shrubs for colorful and strong accent around our houses, yard and landscaping.  They are 100% successful in upping the sale of property, too. Gorgeous!  Aloha from Orlando.
