Snapshot: Pawale

Here’s a neat Big Island endemic. Native Rumex are not found throughout the state. Pawale (Rumex skottsbergii) is even more localized. It’s only found in the Kona, Puna, and Kau Districts of the Big Island. Luckily in its habitat, it is a very common plant. Pawale is very easy to see as one of the pioneering species on lava flows. We found many along the Chain of Craters Road in Volcano National Park.
