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 tuberose is a night-blooming plant thought to be native to Mexico. It has been cultivated in Hawaii for many years now and has become a very popular lei making flower here. Its scent is described as a complex, exotic, sweet floral.
