The colors! They really get to me ... and the textures.

Endangered endemic yellow hibiscus, by @nohoanafarm
Maʻo hau hele (Hibiscus brackenridgei) - One of Hawaiʻi's many endangered endemic dry forest species. It also happens to be our "State" flower. We planted a number of these around the farm from seeds collected on Paleʻaʻahu Ridge in Waikapū about 6 years ago. Currently in full bloom at the farm. There are few places left that you can find this hibiscus growing in the wild. I remember Grandpa Sol Kaʻōpūiki showing me some of the last stands of maʻo hau hele on Lānaʻi. E ola nā meakanu ʻāpaʻakuma o Hawaiʻi. #nohoʻanafarm #Waikapū #maʻohauhele #endemic #endangered #Hawaiʻi #Maui #endangeredcapitaloftheworld #native #drylandforest #stopimportingforeignplants #grownativeplants #Lānaʻi
