The pua kenikeni lei is very fragile and fleeting. The lei is made with freshly picked pua kenikeni. The flower blooms white then gradually changes to yellow then orange then deep orange. Therefore, the color change will happen during shipment, and your pua kenikeni will most likely be some shade of orange when you receive it.
