Hawaii: Beach Morning Glory

Beach Morning Glory 1

Here is another plant that we noticed in the sand dunes at Kamaole Beach in Kihei, when we visited Maui in Hawaii last week. It is known as Beach Morning Glory or Pohuehue (botanical name Ipomoea pes-caprae subsp. brasiliensis). The pretty native creeper adds a splash of colour to the beach sand.
