Brighamia insignis



Kapi'olani Garden, Waikiki, Oahu

ALULA    HAHA    PUA 'ALA

Endangered succulent subshrub of Kaua'i's arid Na Pali cliffs, where a single wild plant remains.  Fortunately it has been propagated and distributed among botanical gardens.  Showy yellow flowers are now pollinated by hand since its natural moth host is presumed extinct.  The white-flowered Brighamia rockii occurs on windward cliffs of Moloka'i & Maui.
