Hibiscus Flowers come in many colors. The variety of flowers and plants on the island are one of its true joys. Because the climate on the island of Hawaii is so varied, the local plants are, too. There are prickly pear cacti up by Waimea, tundra plants on Mauna Kea, jungles with philodendrons as big as your head near Hilo, and orchids growing on stone walls or just wild by the roadside in many locations. Sometimes it's hard to concentrate on your driving because there's so much to see!
