The flowers in Hawaii are beautiful! There are so many tropical flowers that I saw on the roads, up in the mountains, in the gardens of local residents, at the flower shops and on lobbies of hotels. The famous ones are the plumeira. The plumeira trees grow all over Hawaii. The flowers are white, yellow or fuschia. The flowers are made into leis and head gears. There are also many orchids in the island ranging from Cattleyas to the regular dendrobiums. Pikaki leis are made from hundreds of flower orchid petals.

The "Birds of Paradise" flower is also beautiful! The flower arrangements at lobbies are very attractive because of these flowers. They add that tropical look!

Of course, there is the anthurium. These flowers last for about three months!. These look like plastic flowers because the petals are glossy red!

Then, there's the Hibiscus, the state flower of Hawaii. They come in white, yellow, pink and red. They are sometimes used as hair accessories. Some local girls pin the flowers to their hair.
