These are all flowers that were here long before humans found the remote beauty of Hawaii.

On the left is the vivid magenta flower stalk of the rare and gorgeous Lobelia gaudichaudii plant which grows only in high in the mountains of Oahu. In the center, peach-colored ‘ie’ie (freycinetia arbora), is the focal point. It is a high elevation vine that climbs the massive trees and cliffsides spreading bursts of long, thin leaves along a robust woody vine. Below that, the delicate yellow flowers of ilima, (Sida fallax) are the official flower of Oahu (every island has a special flower or lei material as a symbol on lei day). Yellow ilima grows from the beaches up to the mountains and makes a wonderful landscape plant! Ohia, the flowering tree which is among the first to grow forth from the barren lava, is just to the right of the ie ie. I chose the rare orange ohia blossom to continue the orange tones. Ohai (Sesbania tomentosa), a beautiful vine with flowers that remind me a little of sweet pea, is in the bottom right corner.

Thanks to Nate Yuen of HawaiianForest.com for his posts on his blog and Facebook that have taught me so much about these flowers, and to Kim and Forest Starr, for inspiration photos.

Giclées are high quality prints on canvas with a UV resistant protective coating. Shipped rolled (unstretched) ready for any framer to stretch and optionally frame. If displayed correctly: out of direct sunlight, and cleaned only with a damp soft cloth, these prints will stay vibrant for years.

Gallery wrapped prints have thicker stretcher bars and when you wrap the canvas around the edge, it is printed for color on the edges so that you do not have to frame it. You could also use a floater frame with this style of print.

Standard Edges must be framed. They are blank on the edges with thinner stretcher bars so that they are able to fit into a wide variety of frames.
