Lots of trees on this island - mostly in the neighborhoods. Lots of different Reds. Maui Tropical Plantation has alot of trees to see.

Great pictures, @kingbingo. I started with three cuttings brought back from Maui 25 years ago. Tell me something, did you just collect your own cuttings or purchase them? Do you have names on all the cuttings?

I put an ad on craigslist and met up with a few people. Some wanted a few bucks per cutting. Also knocked on some doors and got cuttings for free. As far as names - no. I got some from a tree that had very small dark red flowers, another one has larger dark red flowers. Several different rainbow types and a few guessers. That big multi-tip cutting came from the one that has the small red flowers. I saw a few others trees that had large vivid red flowers but didn't get any cuttings.

Well, regardless of names (or no-names in this case), you'll sure have a lot of trees growing. You did well! Hurray!

I'm just like in awh of all those cuttings. Very nice.
They sell cuttings everywhere in Honolulu but never thought to go cut some to bring home.
Plus, those trees are everywhere.

When I see those huge trees full of blooms in Hawaii, I think to myself all the struggles I go through to get just one bouquet off one tree!

Don't we wish we were growing our tropical plants in a sub-tropical or tropical environment. Sighing!

It doesn't count unless it is 12 months, Cheryl. Rolling my eyes.

Yes, I know. And those 3 months can be brutal on my plants!
