saw a picture of this particular Hawaiian flower recently, and it reminded me of ones we saw when we were on Maui

it’s known as spiral ginger, red tower ginger or red velvet ginger… the Hawaiian name for ginger plants is awapuhi

it is one of the flowers that looks like it is made of plastic, lol… this is from a bouquet we had in the Gingerbread house Airbnb we stayed in…

this one, possibly shampoo ginger, had us touching it a few times because we were convinced it was artificial… but then the little piece opened up… with a bit of purple in it…

it’s always so interesting to see the different vegetation when travelling…
