Flowering Trees: Images of Hawaii's Natural Beautyby Douglas Pratt
Photographed by leading wildlife expert and ornithologist H. Douglas Pratt, Flowering Trees - Images of Hawai'i's Natural Beauty presents the most popular and significant of Hawai'i's native and introduced flowering trees. Taken in natural habitats, these photographs showcase the remarkable beauty and distinct characteristics of the variety of trees and their blossoms that thrive in and fill Hawai'i's landscape.
Hawai'i's natural wonderland is a microcosm as diverse as the cultures and peoples who came here from afar. Hundreds of flowering trees have been transplanted from around the globe, including Indian coral/bean, Mexican and Singapore plumeria, royal poinciana native to Madagascar, African tulip tree, and angel's trumpet from the Andes of South America. Others are native verdure familiar even by their Hawaiian names such as kou, mamane, ohi'a lehua, and kukui.
