ʻĀhinahina - Silversword - Argyroxiphium sandwicense - Sunrise on the Summit Haleakalā Maui Hawaii
This unusual plant, unique to Haleakala on Maui and Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa on the Big Island of Hawaii, has thoroughly adapted to the harsh environment of its home.
What's even more fascinating is that each volcanic mountain has it's own unique type of silversword.
The Haleakala species is unique to all the world on Maui and is considered by many to be the most beautiful.
The bloom stalk of the silversword is a beautiful sight often several feet tall with a hundred or more purple/red flowers.
What makes the blooming of a silversword even more special is that the plants may live from 15 to more than 90 years.
