I can get quite big and tall and provide a great place for shade from the hot sun. Just as the early Hawaiians planted me around their houses and enjoyed my magnificent shade, you too can find a nice spot beneath my canopy. I love Kaimuki with its sunny skies, low rain, and its soil. Did you know I also can be used for carving, dye, fishing, bowls, and medicine? I have beautiful orange flowers for lei and putting a smile on your face.
