The 'Anianiau is a native Hawaiian bird that lends a bright yellow-green hue to our colorful higher rainforest elevations. Up in particular forests, you may find some delicious lilikoi or passion fruit trees. The Passion flower is funny looking, with two levels of stamen/pistils that protrude out. Combined with the wavy tendrils that come out from the center petals, it is quite the exotic flower. My 'Anianiau finds these flowers very curious indeed!
