Hawaii: Beach Naupaka

Beach Naupaka 1

We were in Hawaii last week and enjoyed admiring some of the local wildflowers. This one is Beach Naupaka (Scaevola sericea) and is common in the sand dunes on Maui.

The flowers are obviously fan flowers – relatives of the Thick-leaved Fan-flower that grows here in Perth. The Hawaiian Beach Naupaka has clusters of these interesting fruit.
