What flower do you first think of when thinking about flowers in Hawaii? Honestly the first flower that used to always come to mind first for me was the hibiscus. Now I think about the plumeria first because that is a very common flower that is used for making leis and as you walk around the streets the plumeria is growing al over the place. The hibiscus is still my favorite. We have visited many gardens in Hawaii and have seen so many different varieties of flowers, I won't even begin to pretend that I can tell you what they are other than beautiful. The flowers in this story are from different locations around Hawaii, the location was chosen because Waikapu came up on one of the flower picture's GPS marker. No Hibiscus in this story.
