Koki‘o ke‘oke‘o in bloom

15 04 2012


This lovely display of koki‘o ke‘oke‘o (Hibiscus arnottianus), a native Hawaiian hibiscus with white flowers, grows outside The Officers’ Club at the Marine Corps Base Hawaii, located at Mōkapu, Oʻahu. My friend Andrea treated me to a ladies’ luncheon there on Saturday with her Daughters of the Nile group. Finding this hedge in bloom made up for the eyesore of the drained and abandoned swimming pool. Our server said reconstruction work on the swimming pool was halted when iwi (bones) were uncovered at the site.
