Originally from the Himalayas region of Nepal and India, the White Ginger Lily was introduced to Hawaii by early settlers and has since been naturalized. It grows well in the Islands without harm to other species, and is a favorite fragrant flower lei in Hawaii.
Dendrobium orchids have been among Hawaii’s most popular plants since they were introduced from the Philippines in 1896. They have since become the single most valuable commercial flower in Hawaii. Visitors to the Hawaiian Islands will notice orchids throughout their vacation – they may receive a fresh orchid lei upon arrival, or enjoy a tropical cocktail with a fresh orchid hanging on the lip of their glass.
