The hibiscus and ti leaf two of Hawaii’s most recognized native plants. The Ti Leaf for good luck in the shape of the Kahili and the Hibiscus it’s crowning glory. 45″ x 45″ Designed by John Serrao
The Hawaiians would cut the stalk of the Ti Leaf and curl back the leaves so it would look like the Kahili . It was beautiful but not as precious as the feathered standards of the Alii.
