Hawaii is known for its flora and fauna, and is synonymous with beautiful, picturesque, exotic flowers which are considered to be an integral part of Hawaiian culture. The locals welcome you with the leis flower or a garland of orchid or plumeria, which indeed is a beautiful, touching, and unforgettable gesture.

A mild soothing fragrance and bright colors give Hawaiian flowers an aesthetic appeal and is one of the reasons why Hawaii is called a tropical paradise. The official state flower of Hawaii is not the orchid or plumeria, as most of us would assume, but the yellow hibiscus, also known as the pua aloalo.

Let us take a look at some more exotic flowers along with their names that are native to the Islands of Aloha.
