Hapuu Fern – The curls of the young lacy fronds slowly opens  into larger leaves that can grow up to 15  feet in length and the tree 15-20 feet tall. Found mostly in the wetlands of the islands the Hapuu held water and helped the Hawaiians survive during times of drought and famine.  45″ x 45″  Designed by John Serrao/js659-bk8, js641-bk7

The Hapuu Fern is my favorite tree fern that was once abundant on all the Hawaiian islands but now only found  on Hawaii Island.  Over harvesting, diminishing rainforest and housing development has reduced the hapu’u stands drastically.  Click on the link to read about this beautiful Native Island Fern from the University of Hawaii College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources  CLICK HERE
