Hibiscus brackenridgei


This species was designated in 1988 as the Hawai‘i State Flower. It is rarely found in the wild but can be found more commonly in cultivation. It is normally a shrub but can get as tall as a 25-foot tree. It is gaining in popularity and is a favorite among gardeners for its showy yellow flowers (about 4 inches in diameter).


The growth habit is a tree or a shrub. They are found on the islands of Hawai`i, Maui and Lana`i in lowland dry to mesic forest and shrub land.
