Close your eyes and create in your mind one image that says “Hawaii.” Chances are that image is made up of colorful tropical flowers. Even though many native flowers are small and unassuming, the tropical blossoms that say “Hawaii” are dazzling in their uniqueness and style. Commonly available tropical flowers include Hibiscus, Heliconia, Bird of Paradise, Beehive, Ginger, Anthurium and Orchids.

Nothing says “Welcome to Hawaii” more than a lei, flowers strung in a colorful loop to be put over the head and placed on the shoulders. Materials most often used to create these beautiful fresh “necklaces” include Dendrobium Orchids, Tuberose, Ti Leaf, Kukui Nut and Awapuhi Ginger Blossoms.

Ordering tropical flowers from Hawaii is easy and most transport well. Ordering flowers and leis for weddings, graduations, birthdays, anniversaries and more, makes a memorable celebration even more special. Brighten your day or the day of someone you care about by having an arrangement or leis shipping fresh from Hawaii.
