This is a rare endemic Lobilia that is found only here on Kauai. Even as a person that is born and raised on Kauai, I was very lucky to see it blooming! I have seen the plant itself for many years now, but this is the first time I have seen it in bloom. I think this might be the worlds first GigaPan of a Kauai Kolii in bloom. Some of the native birds of Hawaii that are more abundent on the other Hawaiian Islands are very rare on Kauai, So many of Kauai's bird photographers try to get our native birds on this flower. It proves that the native bird is from Kauai. I have gotten a picture of a Amakihi on this Kolii. It was a OK shot. I'll be going back in to the mountains again soon to get maybe a better GigaPan of some Koilis and hopefully more photos of our native birds on them. If you want to see my bird photos and videos of other interesting things about Hawaii check out my blog. bobbyskauai.blog34.fc2.com Will open in a new tab or window/
Most of the plants in this area are native Hawaiian plants. Unfortunatly most of the plants that people see in Hawaii are not native to our Islands. This year we had 40 plants, 2 birds, and even a bug that is native to Kauai that was added to the endangered species list. I will definitely do anything I can to help them.
