Flowers in the Morning

Kauai, Hawaii, 1 March 2015

We were staying in Kauai at a 5-acre tropical flower farm so I took some photos of the flowers before we left for the morning….

  2. The light on the orchid is beautiful, Murray, and never having seen a cacao plant, I was intrigued by it!

    The ? flower is a Queen Emma Lily ~ A type of crinum lily or spider lily, its common name comes from Queen Emma, the wife of King Kamehameha IV. This lily was said to be her favorite, and it had a prominent place in her summer garden in the Lawai Valley on Kauai. (I have one of these in my “Flower of the Day” Facebook album from my last trip to Hawaii in September 2014.)

    The yellow flower you have labeled as “Hibiscus?” is actually a Cup of Gold, also known as Golden Chalice Vine, Hawaiian Lily, and others and if from the nightshade family. All parts of the plant are poisonous. It’s an invasive species in Hawaii. All of these images are beautiful, although I’m partial to the pink torch ginger. 🙂
