RELATED INFORMATION

The stiff yellow/red flowers come from mangroves that were introduced to Hawaii in 1922. The flowers are gathered from trees that grow at the mouths of brackish water streams near the ocean, and are most plentiful during the late summer through the fall. The lei will keep well for over a week and is still wearable when it is completely dried.

The He’e Berry is used at Christmas time and throughout the year as a long-lasting and colorful lei making material. Unfortunately the shade tree it grows on (schefflera) has become one of the worst weed trees, especially in the moist forest areas of the Islands. The red buds grow in clusters that resemble “arms,” which is the reason they are called “he’e,” the Hawaiian name for octopus.
