The Cigar Lei is a popular lei for men in Hawaii and is often given as a Father’s Day Lei. About 2,000 tiny orange-red tubular blossoms are used to create this magnificent lei. The fragrance-free Pua Kika (cigar flower) got its common name because it resembles a miniature lit cigar, tipped with white ash. *Cigar leis color ranges from yellow-orange to orange-red.

NOTE: During the busy months, due to the shortage of cigar flower blossoms, the Cigar Kukui Lei is used as a substitution.
