The Naupaka Kahakai are commonly found across the Hawaiian shores. They are tiny and barely noticeable but very distinctive of their half bloom. In Hawaii there are 2 types of Naupaka , the Naupaka Kahakai and the Naupaka Kuahiwi. THE LEGEND: 🌸The legend says that they represent the Princess Naupaka and her Lover Kaui. Because she was a Royal and Kaui was a commoner their Love was forbidden. They were forced to separate. Before they said goodbye, Princess Naupaka took the flower she was wearing on her ear and tore it in half, she gave one half to Kaui in symbol of their everlasting Love. Even the flowers around them could feel their broken hearts and started to only bloom in halves. There are 2 species of Naupaka , the Naupaka Kahakai ( the ocean naupaka) and Naupaka Kuahiwi ( the mountain naupaka ) . When both flowers are joined together they form a full and complete flower and both Lovers can be reunited when both blossoms are picked and connected.
