Getting to know your Hawaiian Lobeliads: Teaser

I have a couple of posts that I am working on right now, but I wanted to get the word out on this one that is near and dear to me. One of my lifetime goals is to see every single extant Hawaiian lobeliad in its natural environment. Many are quite rare and it takes special effort to find them.

This is going to be a series of post where I highlight a particular species of lobeliad that I have taken pictures of in the wild. I’ve been hiking quite a bit lately and luckily with some of the preeminent field biologists here. Let’s put it this way, next to a rock, I am an all-knowing god. Next to these guys…. I am a rock.

Just my backyard, but still pretty

William Hillebrand called the lobeliads “the peculiar pride of our (Hawaiian) flora” and I heartily concur. Stay tuned.
