Wiliwili, with the scientific name Erythrina sandwicensis, is a species of flowering tree in the pea family, Fabaceae that is endemic to the Hawaiian Islands. It is the only species of Erythrina that naturally occurs here. It is typically found in Hawaiian tropical dry forests on leeward island slopes up to an elevation of 600 m (2,000 ft). Wiliwili means "repeatedly twisted" in the Hawaiian language and refers to the seedpods, which dehisce, or twist open, to reveal the seeds. Wiliwili trees grow to a height of 4.59 m (1530 ft) with a gnarled and stout trunk that reaches 0.30.9 m (0.983.0 ft) in diameter. The bark is smooth, slightly fissured, and covered in gray or black spines up to 1 cm (0.39 in) in length. The bark on the main trunk of mature trees has a distinct orange cast, which is caused by a terrestrial alga. The wiliwili is summer (dry season) drought deciduous. Other common names Hawaiian erythrina, Hawaiian coraltree Botanical synonym Erythrina monosperma Gaud., not Lam.
