Millions of years before the Hawaiian Islands were formed by volcanic action, even before dinosaurs roamed the continents, hala trees flourished on earth. The hala, also called pandanus (its scientific name) or screwpine, is a plant native to the Pacific and parts of Asia. It came to
Hawaii by natural means, since its seed is able to float.
There are female and male hala trees. The male hala flower, called hinano, has a pleasant fragrance. Its pollen was used to preserve feather leis and kahilis (feather symbols of royalty) and was also used by Hawaiian girls as a love charm. The white bracts, special leaves around the flower, were made into very fine mats which could be used only by Hawaiian chiefs and kahunas. An oil from the bracts was used to ease headaches. The flowers were said to cure constipation.

The fragrant Maile lei is considered to be the oldest type of lei in the tradition of Hawaiian lei making. The lei maile was the lei of all people, all classes, and all occasions, but most especially, it was associated with the worship of the gods of hula. Maile, sweetly perfumed, has many siblings, with different shaped leaves and traditions. In Hawaii legend there once was a greedy maile, a brittle maile, a luxuriant maile, and a sweetly scented maile. They were abandoned in the forest by their angry demi-god brother, because they weren't able to help him in his conquest of a beautiful chiefess.

According to legend, maile is associated with the goddess Laka and the ends of a maile garland are left open so that the energies of the goddess may enter.

There are 45 species of papaya, one of the favorite fruits of Hawaii. The trees are small but are very fast growing. They bear fruit when one year old, some of which weigh up to 8 pounds. The Hawaiian solo papaya and the sunrise papaya weigh 1 1/2 pounds and are local favorites in many recipes such as salads, chutneys, jams and jellies. Papayas are a delicious breakfast fruit on their own or with berries and chunks of other tropical fruits. Papaya enzymes help with digestion and are a good source of Vitamins A, C, and E. The male plants have only flowers and the female plants produce flowers and the fruit. Their unique leaves are used as soap and as a meat tenderizer. The seeds are used in salad dressing and in medicines.

Plumeria are a tropical flowering tree, sometimes called frangipani, in the plant family Apocynaceae. Though tropical by nature, when protected from frost, they are well suited to subtropical climates in the United States in states bordered by the Gulf of Mexico, and in Southern California. They are prolific in Hawaii.

Plumeria are valued as landscape plants, ornamentals, and for their flowers. The flowers come in seemingly endless variety of color, size and fragrance.

Most flowers have a b pleasant fragrance that is most intense during the early part of the day.

There seem to be several basic plumeria color schemes: white with a yellow center, yellow, multicolor, and red. There is speculation that red is a special case of multicolor. Most of the reds can be more properly referred to as red-purple.

Most plumeria enthusiasts know what a plumeria smells like. It smells like a plumeria! What a surprise! The scent is wonderful, but indescribable. Sometimes we call it floral sweet and other times we describe it as simply plumeria.

Pua Kenikeni
A native to the South Pacific Islands, the pua tree, as it is known there, was introduced in the late 1800's. The fragrant blossoms have become the flower of Kane'ohe. Because the flowers, at one time, were sold for ten cents apiece, the Hawaiians called it, "pua kenikeni," ten cents flower. Few pua kenikeni trees are found outside of windward O'ahu. The fragrant tubular flowers bloom a creamy white and by the second day, they change to a subtle orange. They are usually strung on thick lengths of banana fiber, knitting yarn, or one-inch wide bandage.

This was one of the most prized leis during the "Boat Days" of the late 1800's. When the Steamer ships arrived in port, visitors were greeted and adorned with this most "expensive" and fragrant lei. At the time, this flowered lei cost one dime - a fortune for those days. Hence, the kenikeni is known as the Ten Cent Flower. This 2-inch long, 5-petal, tubular blossom changes color from white to yellow and finally to orange. It takes almost 45 flowers to create one circular lei.
