To see the ʻĀhinahina - Hawaiian Silversword in bloom is truly special . . This image was photographed this morning on the summit of Haleakalā 06 August 2013 08/06/2013 05:53:32 AM HST Haleakalā - Hale-a-ka-la literally translates from Hawaiian to English as House of the Sun.

A beautiful sunrise on the summit this morning . . Haleakalā National Park has more endangered species than any other National Park in the United States. One of the plants which is native to only Haleakalā is the ʻĀhinahina, or Haleakalā Silversword. Living only at the summit of Haleakalā , the Silversword has developed some interesting adaptations for survival. One of the lesser-known adaptations is that the leaves of the Silversword form at an angle so that the older leaves focus the warming energy of the sun on to the youngest leaves. The silvery hairs, fleshy leaves, and low-growing rosette form of the Haleakalā silversword - Argyroxiphium sandwicense subsp. macrocephalum - allow it to survive in hot, dry climates like the aeolian desert cinder slopes of the crater. Silverswords live between 3 and 90 years or more. They flower once, sending up a spectacular flowering stalk, and then die soon afterward, scattering drying seeds to the wind. ʻĀhinahina - Silversword - Argyroxiphium sandwicense - Summit Haleakalā Maui Hawaii Copyright 2013 Sharon Mau - All Rights Reserved

Artist's Description

ʻĀhinahina - Silversword - Argyroxiphium sandwicense - Summit Haleakalā Maui Hawaii Haleakalā (/ˌhɑːliːˌɑːkəˈlɑː/; Hawaiian: [ˈhɐleˈjɐkəˈlaː]), or the East Maui Volcano, is a massive shield volcano that forms more than 75% of the Hawaiian Island of Maui. The western 25% of the island is formed by the West Maui Mountains. The tallest peak of Haleakalā, at 10,023 feet (3,055 m), (where I am standing here) is Puʻu ʻUlaʻula (Red Hill). From the summit one looks down into a massive depression some 11.25 km (7 mi) across, 3.2 km (2 mi) wide, and nearly 800 m (2,600 ft) deep. The surrounding walls are steep and the interior mostly barren-looking with a scattering of volcanic cones. Flora and Fauna that exist nowhere else in the world - To see the ʻĀhinahina - Hawaiian Silversword in bloom is truly special . . This image was photographed this morning...
