University of Hawaii Press, 1987 - Gardening - 160 pages
The Hawaiian islands, isolated by thousands of miles of ocean for millions of years, posses a unique assemblage of native flowers and plants. This text describes more than 130 indigenous and endemic species of Hawaiian plants, their characteristics and habitats, and how they came to be. The photographs aim to provide an easy and accurate means of recognizing a given plant and serve as a permanent record of the Hawaiian islands' fast-disappearing native flora.
